Software Engineering with Sean Eby opinions, trips, tricks and tools for Software Engineering and .NET
Back in June, I posted that I was attempting to become a better developer, in 6 months, by accomplishing 3 goals. Well, it's been more than 6 months, and I thought I'd post an update. 1) Complete 3 OMSE courses. Well, I did great on this one, having finished OMSE 522 in the summer, and OMSE 513 and 535 this fall. All three were great courses, and I ......

Today, I had the pleasure of trying to use CSS to style some ASP.NET ImageButtons. One aspect of the style that we wanted was a border around the button on a mouse hover. However, no matter what I tried, I could not set a border on the button with CSS. After a bit more digging, I found out that ASP.NET is trying to help us by inserting an Inline style ......

I am a huge fan of Continuous Integration and have been using CruiseControl.NET (CCNet) successfully for the past year. Recently, I've run across a limitation in the way the cnet.config file is used. Normally, when a developer needs to reuse some piece of information, such as a file path, he will put this information in a Property or Constant. However, ......

I was recently “called out” by George Clingerman to join The Brotherhood of Becoming Better Developers. Although I do not have the energy level George has, I will accept the challenge. Here is my list of goals for the next 6 months: 1) Complete 3 OMSE courses. I am currently enrolled in the masters Oregon Masters of Software Engineering, so this one ......
