I haven't used too many CRM platforms in the past, but for sure HubSpot's features are plentiful for the small business person on the go. And if you're looking to integrate your own data with HubSpot, they also offer a free (though rate limited) RESTful API, of which I will be covering today.

Creating Credit Card Charges With Stripe And .NET

In this post I'll be going over the Stripe API and more specifically, using it in a .NET environment. I'll say right now that Stripe and the internet do not make this an easy task for a .NET developer.

But while the zany antics of Moss, Roy and Jen may belong squarely in the realm of fiction (and rarely have much, if anything at all to do with IT) they do capture what it’s like to work in IT support in broad terms every now and then. There’s a whole lot more to IT support than asking people if they’ve tried rebooting their thin client (although you will likely do it at least once).
