Well its official.  I have given up my job at Dell as the chief architect for dell.com and moved to Clear Measure.  Read more here!



I am semi-excited to say that today is my first day into the land of backbone.js. This will of course take me into many other new javascript-y areas. As I have primarily been focused on building backend systems for the past many years…with no focus on client side bits…this will be all new ground for me. Very exciting! I am sure that this endeavor will ......

In the next few days I will be taking a look at NDepends latest greatness! You should too. http://www.ndepend.com/NDep... A big feature for me that is quite interesting is LINQ to CQL. Very exciting. Good job guys ......

Next week Thursday I will be speaking at MvcConf. This is a virtual, free conference that has attracted some very heavy hitters MVC hitters to come and chat about their voodoo. This should be interest sting. http://mvcconf.com/ Below is the abstract and TOC for my presentation. If you think I missed something or am watering down the presentation please ......

I have recently started writing another book. The topic of this book is ASP.NET MVC. This book differs from my previous book in that rather than working towards building one project from end to end – this book will demonstrate specific topics from end to end. It is a recipe book (hence the cookbook name) and will be part of the Packt Publishing cookbook ......

If you like C# at all then you know that Jon Skeet (writings, blog, StackOverflow) is the man when it comes to this language. Just look at his StackOverflow flair!!! He is the top dude by a long shot in C# and has been for a long time. His latest book “C# in Depth 2nd edition” is currently available in the Manning Early Access Program (MEAP) and ready ......

Hey there everyone. I was recently tasked to pitch a book to my publisher. As a first step I need to come up with an outline for the Table of Contents. This book is the standard cookbook style with an added focus on the MVC side of ASP.NET. I have been poking about at other similarly styled books to get some ideas. I think comparing ASP.NET Web Forms ......

Hey all! I am finally going to put my full steam into setting up my VirtualDNUG users group. With the help of the good folks over at ineta (they are providing a LiveMeeting license for us) I am hoping to host a great environment for learning. I will probably start off with topics on ASP.NET MVC and the various side projects that surround that world ......

Since I enjoyed the first edition of the ASP.NET MVC in Action book I figured I would jump on this second edition of this book and framework as quickly as I could. I just read this post from Jeffrey Palermo: http://jeffreypalermo.com/b... Which basically states that they are actively working on the next ......

I just finished the first article to a two maybe three part mini-series on NBuilder for DotNetSlackers.com. NBuilder is a great little tool for generating your objects for you. Often times you will create an application that is dependent on data or a set of hydrated objects for it to work or for you to be able to test your application’s UI, etc. Sometimes ......

Some while back I had a chance to work with the good folks at Neudesic. They presented us with the concept of Scrum on a Page. I never received the soft copy of this document and so I finally decided to create one. Click the image below to get the full size image! Scrum on a Page describes most of the really important details about Scrum, who is involved, ......

The first question you may have in reading the title to this post is what is a Brownfield application? The book opens up a discussion on this topic with this opening line: “An industrial Brownfield is a commercial site contaminated by hazardous waste that has the potential to be reused once it’s cleaned up. To a software developer, a Brownfield Application ......

Hey all. Just wanted to let you know that the interview that I did with Javier Lozano (lozanotek.com) is now available on DotNetRadio! This was a pretty hefty interview so I had to cut it in half. In the first half of the interview we discussed the following points. How and why was ASP.NET MVC created? What are the pain points of ASP.NET Webforms? What ......

Gil Zilberfeld from TypeMock: As you may know by now (from my tweeting or by looking on the DotNetRadio schedule listed on the site) there is an upcoming interview with Gil Zilberfeld from TypeMock. He will be on the show at 5am PST. Please send in your TypeMock and unit testing questions for him. The submitters of any questions that I use on the show ......

His primary focus is helping customers move to the .NET Framework. He speaks regularly at Microsoft conferences and can be reached through his web site. You can find out more ......

Going into the whole podcasting adventure was something that I didn’t know if I was ready for or not. I won’t lie, it has taken a LOT more time than I had initially estimated. But getting the opportunity to meet and interact with the people that I have has been wonderful. I thought setting up interviews, given that the site is new, would be difficult. ......

Hey all. I wanted to let you know that I am going to be interviewing Sara J Chipps (of www.girldeveloper.com) tomorrow at 7am. We will be discussing all sorts of programmer goodness from making your personal projects a reality (such as Sara’s http://bundl.it project), agile development, commenting your code, and your responsibility as a developer to ......

I just got through interviewing Atif Aziz (@raboof on twitter – foobar spelled backwards!) probably most known (at least to me) for his ELMAH (Error Logging Modules and Handlers) contribution. We discussed ELMAH, ELMAH’s Veracode Application Security Rating which made OWASP top 10 in 2007 and SANS-CWE top 25, Fizzler, Jayrock, BackLINQ, LINQBridge, ......

I recently sat down with Ben Scheirman (co-author of ASP.NET MVC in Action) for my first interview on my new show DotNetRadio. It was quite a talk! We covered the following points: An introduction to Ben Scheirman and how he got into web development Bens path through various web technologies such as ColdFusion, PHP, Ruby, and ASP.NET A brief discussion ......

Hey all. I wanted to take a moment to let you know that I just finished editing the interview with Ben Scheirman as well as piecing together the over all DotNetRadio podcast. I will write the summary post that goes with the podcast and get it up and available this evening. Andy ......

This morning I had the chance to speak with Ben Scheirman. We chatted for roughly an hour or so discussing how he entered into the web development industry, going on the road to teach ASP.NET MVC in its early days, his book ASP.NET MVC in Action, and his thoughts on the use of the MVC framework. We discussed some patterns and tools for testing, tools ......
