db4o
Just started working with db4o this week, and I must say that in the very small way that I am using it, its a pretty slick little database. XCopy deployable, no install required. Its just a file, and it can support client, server supposedly, but I am not sure how much I really care about that. This kind of database is really nice for prototyping because all I have to do is throw the objects in there and they are persisted, bam! You query out using .net Predicate<T> or you can query by example, ......

Mass Transit Announcement
So chris and I have been working on a lightweight service bus similar to NSB called Mass Transit. When Chris and I originally encountered NSB it had a style that didn't really fit the way that I was approaching development at the time and so I decided that, if for nothing else, I would start trying to build one myself to learn more about the concept of an ESB.

How does reversibility affect my designs
Well lets see. I think on of the big things it does is encourage a lot of interfaces in my code. I think it encourages the use of an IoC Container. I think a lot about my code and refactor little things often to get the names right. It has me looking into message based systems as a way to build more loosely coupled systems. It has me looking at various parts of my application and wonder "is this really a service that could be off on its own and then I can just be a customer of?" I tend to move out ......

Alt.Net TypeMock Dinner
After Alt.Net had wrapped up for the day on Sunday there were a few stragglers left in the hotel lobby talking about all manner of things. After hanging out for a while (which included a spontaneous group effort to get schema support added for SQLite in NHibernate (r3478). We eventually migrated over to the Claim Jumper for dinner. Where I was pleasantly surprised by Roy announcing that TypeMock would be sponsoring dinner! We proceeded to order dinner, and a pleasant conversation (2 actually) started ......
