MongoDB (from humongous) is one of many cross-platform document-oriented databases. Classified as a NoSQL database, MongoDB eschews the traditional table-based relational database structure in favor of JSON-like documents with dynamic schemas (MongoDB calls the format BSON), making the integration of data in certain types of applications easier and faster. Released under a combination of the GNU Affero General Public License and the Apache License, MongoDB is free and open-source software.

This post is about hosting ASP.NET 5 Application in Azure WebApps / Websites. If you are using Visual Studio, you can use the publish wizard. But if you are using k or dnx runtimes this option is not available. ASP.NET wiki in GitHub contains a page about FTP deploy but it is not working :( Later I found another page, which discuss about this. But I had to spent some time to make the deployment work successfully.

Long back I wrote an article on creating a language translation bot using Skype and C#, since Microsoft stopped Skype COM API, and I am using lync more than Skype, I thought of writing the same implementation using lync.

But C# doesn’t support string based enums, so here is the code snippet which will help you to associate string values to enums. This code is not using any custom attribute, instead it is using DescriptionAttribute class. Here is the enum, with the associated string values.
