Videos and Interviews from MIX08
Well, I've had the urge to find all the videos I could and watch them to find out all the goodies I missed while not at MIX08. If you missed any of the main sessions, you can find out more about them here. Note that there are 88 sessions recorded here, so it's a lot of good viewing material. Best of all are Scott Hanselman's MVC Videos can be seen here. He also covers the MVC Mock Helpers which better allow for unit tests using various Mock frameworks including Rhino Mocks, TypeMock.NET and Moq. ......

IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore
Update: IoC and Unity - The Basics and Interception As Grigori Melnik noted on my blog previously as well as his own, there was a brand new drop of the Unity Application Block as of March 4th. This by far was a huge update with a lot of breaking changes. That teaches me to use a CTP of any product and blog about it actively as it compares to other Inversion of Control (IoC) containers. Glad I didn't do a lot on ASP.NET MVC just yet but I have a few good projects going on the side with that now. Where ......

Live From Mix08
No, I'm not at Mix08 right now, but I'm busy paying attention to every detail. I'm missing a lot of really cool things such as: Silverlight downloads at 1.5 million a day IE 8 preview with Firebug? SQL Server Data Services Also, now you can download IE8 already from here, so the news just keeps coming... You can too by paying attention to the following places: Live streaming video from Mix from Microsoft and some short videos on: IE 8 Scott Guthrie Ray Ozzie Dean Hachamovitch CodeBetter's live stream ......

IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore I just wanted to revisit the whole Unity Application Block just once more to look at a few more things including handling parameters, instances and so on. If you hadn't seen, there was another source drop of Unity as of 2/26, so if you haven't picked it up, feel free to do so here. So, we're going to continue our look at DI and IoC containers as they pertain to different needs. I'm not going ......

IoC and the Unity Application Block Once Again
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore After the reaction of my last post of talking about IoC and the Unity Application Block, I thought I'd include a few more samples of using Unity and how they compare with other IoC containers. I realized after my first one, that I didn't give any love to StructureMap and I'm going to fix that for a brief sample as well. I realize ......

CMAP Code Camp Wrap Up - Dependency Injection and IoC Containers
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 Introduction to Mocking" where we talked about mocks versus stubs, test pattens and mock frameworks such as Rhino Mocks and Moq. Hopefully we'll be doing ......

Unity Community Contributions and Interception
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 Management (Per Thread, Pooled, Singleton, Transient, etc) Extensibility for Interception So, I realized that Unity was missing some of these things ......

Passed 70-528!
With my hectic schedule, I was still able to squeak in an MCP exam recently.  I passed the 70-528 TS: Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 - Web-Based Client Development exam with a 982!  Time permitting, I'll post some links that helped me quite a bit with the preparation.  I guess I haven't decided yet which exam to take next, but now I have my MCTS - Web Development...
