I’m currently using context/specification style tests. While I think frameworks like J.P.Boodhoo’s are beautiful, I prefer something that works with ReSharper, TD.NET and CI without extra hurdles. I also want something my team, with limited exposure to *Unit frameworks, can easily pick up. I’d prefer not to have the ceremony and misleading terminology ......

Here’re the code and slides from my talks on NHibernate and jQuery. And some links mentioned during my talks: NHibernate: NHibernate Documentation NHibernate Mailing List NHibernate in Action NHForge NHibernate Dimecasts Summer of NHibernate NHProf ActiveWriter (for codgenning mappings) jQuery: jQuery UI Next version of my jQuery slideshow RubyMine ......

I was playing around with converting some HQL and Criteria queries to LINQ, and the result is pretty slick:All I had to do was reference NHibernate.Linq and I went from: public IList<Stay> GetCurrentStays() { string hql = @"FROM Stay WHERE CheckinDate <= :now AND (CheckoutDate IS NULL OR CheckoutDate >= :now)"; var query = getQuery(hql); ......

This Saturday I’ll be speaking at Chicago Code Camp which to my initial dismay is not actually in Chicago but an hour or so north. This is probably best since I’ll feel less nerdy for talking about technology all weekend instead of checking out the city. I’ll be giving two presentation: jQuery Magic Get Rolling with NHibernate If you haven’t signed ......

At Lansing GiveCamp I was chosen to lead a team tasked with creating a guest registration system for Ronald McDonald House of Mid-Michigan. Ronald McDonald House wanted to get off their current system, paper, to streamline their processes and report on their data. The event started around 7:00PM on Friday and ended with 3:00PM on Sunday. That’s 44 hours. ......

Central Ohio Day of .NET was awesome. As promised, here are my code and slides from my talk, Test Driven Development with Inversion of Control. However, ignore them. I have my preferred TDD stack available at http://github.com/ignu/spec... complete with a sample test project ......

For the past four months my controllers have had two constructors: one that received my dependencies and one parameterless that called Windsor directly, because parameterless constructors are a requirement for the default MVC ControllerFactory. (These constructors did have a huge //HACK comment on them.) Wiring up IOC with zero friction was quite simple. ......

Here's a simple way to avoid postbacks in your site, still be SEO friendly and degrade gracefully to JavaScript free browsers (and handle middle clicks and copy&paste) in ASP.NET MVC using jQuery. First, we'll create an alternate MasterPage called No.master with no content, only one ContentPlaceHolder: <asp:ContentPlaceHolder ID="MainContent" ......

Here's my new favorite: public static string AppSetting(this string parameter) { return System.Configuration.Config... } Now I can simply call "BaseUrl".AppSetting(); Beautiful ......

I recently had a requirement to filter a table as the user was typing. I was able to write a jQuery plugin to do this in just six lines of code. I want to use jQuery to add a keyup handler to my search box, and target table(s) via a selector parameter. First, in order to extend functionality onto a selector, we add a new function to $.fn /* Style Definitions ......
