I'd Rather Be Coding Jay Glynn thinking out loud.
So I've had this blog for a number of years. Posted to it for a while but then for a variety of reasons I stopped. Figure it's time to start back up. First bit of news is the final edits for the next edition of Professional C# are finished. Seems like with each edition the task gets more and more difficult to get done. I'm undecided if I'll do the next ......

I've been digging into Windows Workflow the past couple of weeks. Very interesting stuff. Once you get your head around the paradigm, it seems to have a lot of possibilities. One thing that concerns me a little, doesn't seem to be a lot of community support around it. Perhaps I'm not looking in the right places. I'd like to see what Microsoft has in ......

I love the sport of hockey. I play 3 or 4 times a week, I coach my son's team and I have season tickets to the Nashville Predators. What happened to Richard Zednik last night is every hockey players worst fear. Thank God he's OK, last report he is stable but still in intensive care ......

This whole idea of Morts is really getting out of hand. How insecure in your profession must you be before you need to create a category of developers to put yourself over. I keep seeing comments like I'm teaching a class of Morts today Can Morts enter the new frontier of programming I know what the origins are of Mort, but it seems it has become somewhat ......

That's how long since my last post. Main reason was that the company that I worked for "frowned" on blogging, speaking etc. I had to get permission to work on Pro C# books. That is all behind me now. I have been working for Juris by LexisNexis for about 2 months now. Man what a difference. I haven't been excited to go to work in a very long time. I ......

Well after the NHLPA and the NHL have finally resolved their differences, Bob Goodenow has resigned. Goodenow was the head of the players association. If it wasn;t for his blinders and for his arrogance, thier probably would have been hockey last year. I have the pleasure of knowing a couple of NHL players and for the most part, everyone was willing ......

I was able to attend the CAB training session at Redmond earlier this week. It was a very informative couple of days. We were able to meet and talk with the dev team of CAB. We went through a series of Hands On Labs that will be available soon. I am still trying to get my head around the how CAB works at a detail level. I have a good understanding of ......

I have been a FireFox user for well over a year now. The number one reason is that I can get the tab functionality to work the way that I want it to work (with the addition of a couple of addins). So far IE7 is falling a little short in tab functionality. The menu, shortcut and standard button bar are linked to each tab. Remove the standard button bar ......

There has been a couple fo posts recently regarding the hiring practices of companies. I have had a couple of interesting experiences with this recently. These experiences I would classify as how *not* to hire someone. First one happend about 4 or 5 months ago. I submitted a resume to consulting firm. The company is fairly well know in the .NET development ......

I sent the final edits in for Professional C# 2005 yesterday. Writing a book is (even just the 8 chapters that I did for this one) is a lot of work. So many late nights, frustrations in getting pre-pre-pre-beta software to work, redoing chapters when the pre-beta software is released etc etc etc. I probably will be taking a little time off from writing. ......

Without question the message from TechEd this year was services. How to migrate services, how to make services, how to use data in services etc etc etc. However, a comment was made in the BOF session I hosted that has me thinking. The question came up that since his organization is trying to move to service based architecture, he has found that the ......

I hosted the Pragmatic Architecture BOF session last night and it turned out to be a really great session. There was some great discussion about when and if SOA is the correct answer, how to deal with upper management on determining the right way to implement and architecture and how does an architect stay current on the technologies. It was satisfying ......

I read in SD Times today that OASIS is going to define SOA for us. From the article: Just what is and what is not part of a service-oriented architecture is the subject of the latest work the Organization for the Advancement of Structured Information Standards (OASIS) is pursuing Another quote: Writing a specialization of SOA for electronic business ......

I'll be working the in the Community Lounge at the Author/Publishers booth. As of now I'll be there Mon during lunch, most of the day on Wed and for a couple of hours on Thurs. I'll also be hosting the Pragmatic Architecture BOF session on Wed night BOF041 in Cabana 2. One other note, the Professional C# 2005 book is getting close. I'm working on the ......

I have to vent a little here on something that struck a nerve earlier today. I happened on this post from Eric Sink. Basically it states that they were looking for a developer. Now first I want to say that I actually use Eric's product. This is not a slam on Eric or his product, but in the post there is this one line: You have a bachelor's degree in ......
