ASP.NET MVC 5 with Razor Kendo UI: Dynamic Grid Creation – Columns, Ordering, Grouping and Paging
The requirements were simple! A grid that will load a whatever query, grouped by whatever columns, with filters enabled, paging and everything. Easy task with ASP.NET Telerik grids but not easy at all with Kendo UI!

ASP.NET MVC 5: “Authorization” by default for your web app

C#: Basic Combinatorics
Basic combinatorics in C# is a straight forward task for relatively small numbers like (100!). This is a helper class I wrote when I was asked to write an online lottery system.

Here is the code and please, if someone knows a faster way or has some suggestions let me now!
