In my previous post, I talked about some of the happenings from the day two experience. Day three was only a half day with only two sessions. So, it was best to make the best of times anyhow. Once again, it snowed again, rather heavily at times, so nature's cruel joke on ALT.NET. Impromptu Sessions One of the best sessions was an impromptu session with ......

In my previous installment of recapping the events from ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle, I covered pretty much the opening ceremonies as it were. The weather was definitely interesting the entire weekend. Who would believe that we had snow, hail and rain for most of the time we were there in the latter half of April? Mind you it didn't stick, but if you ......

Now that we've somewhat recovered from ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle, it's time for another DC ALT.NET meeting. I'm currently finishing up my wrapups for Seattle still and I'm sure I have months worth of material from there. Anyhow, this time Jay Flowers will be talking to us about Continuous Integration and CI Factory which was postponed from last month ......

ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle has come to a close. What a great time it was and it met every expectation if not exceeded them. Currently I'm in the Seattle airport waiting for my flight home which just got re-arranged. Anyhow, I'd like to wrap up my thoughts for the first day of the event. Setting It Up I arrived one day early for the event to make sure ......

Well, the day has finally come where I'm heading to ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle. It's been a long time of planning for this day with all the other guys mentioned on the site. The weather's not looking so great with a possibility of snow on Saturday. Not looking forward to that part as I'm leaving sunny, beautiful Washington DC where it is around 75F ......

Last night I attended the Northern Virginia Ruby Users Group (NovaRUG) meeting in Reston last night with Dave Thomas (PragDave) and Chad Fowler. It was a completely packed house and the temperatures were a bit hight in the room, but it was well worth the sweating to attend. Paul Barry presented first on Merb and gave a really good demonstration of some ......

Tonight I will be heading to the Northern Virginia Ruby Users Group (NoVARUG) meeting tonight with Dave Thomas (PragDave) talking about metaprogramming in Ruby. Should be a great time and I'm sure it will be full tonight. For those interested in some introduction to metaprogramming in Ruby, here's a good link to help get you started. Metaprogramming ......

Time for another adventure in F#, covering some of the basics of functional programming and F# in particular. Today we'll manage to look more at regular .NET integration and .NET programming. With the previous efforts, we've looked more at functional programming and in turn F# specific things, but want to show that you can do anything normally in F# ......

Dave Laribee and Jeremy Miller recently recorded an episode on DotNetRocks and was just posted today. Episode 333 "It's the ALT.NET Show" can be found here. It's a great show that explains ALT.NET for those who may not really know what it is outside of some of the arguments on the altdotnet mailing list. This includes discussions on open source frameworks, ......

I really enjoyed speaking at this past weekend's CMAP Code Camp. I hope you all enjoyed my presentation on "Loosen Your Dependencies with Dependency Injection and Inversion of Control Containers". It was a great discussion to have with everyone and I like to learn there as much as I teach. I also enjoyed teaming up with Scott Allen on his "A Gentle ......

Now that Unity has been released into the wild, there has definitely been a bit of interest swirling around it. One of my key wants for a good IoC container is basic interception capabilities. My criteria for evaluating a container usually comes down to the following: Configurability (XML, DSL, Code) Dependency Resolution, usually opinionated Lifetime ......

Well, Brad Wilson and Jim Newkirk must really be busy lately. After I talked about the release of xUnit.net RC2, just today, Brad announced the release of RC3. As always, you can find the latest bits here. This fixes a number of bugs and adds CruiseControl.NET and ASP.NET MVC Preview 2 support as well in addition to the Resharper 3.1 and TestDriven.NET ......

I want to thank the fine folks at the Rockville .NET Users Group (RockNUG) and Dean Fiala for giving me the opportunity to speak last night. It was a record crowd last night, so I'm glad that people were interested in Loose Coupling, Design Patterns, Test Driven Development, Behavior Driven Development and Inversion of Control containers. I hope everyone ......

The Northern Virginia Ruby Users Group (NoVARUG) will be holding their next meeting next week with a special speaker in Dave Thomas (PragDave). Dave is in town teaching Advanced Rails Studio in Reston and will be kind enough to come talk about the Ruby Object model and how it facilitates metaprogramming. The details are as follows: Subject: Dave Thomas ......

As Chris Tavares mentioned in his blog, Unity 1.0 has been released a couple of days earlier than the April 7th release date mentioned by Grigori Melnik earlier. Scott Densmore also announced this as well as working on porting the inteception from ObjectBuilder2 which I talked about earlier in some of my Unity and IoC containers posts. Looking forward ......
