Development In a Tesseract Observations and Developmental Experiences
I’ve recently been looking at better ways to combine IoC functionality with MEF composition. I’ve created a workable solution using just MEF but there is some nasty boilerplate floating around when creating nested containers. As an example to this issue, the data model contains a set of nested objects in which the Root object holds the MEF CompositionContainer ......

Being an ultra-introvert, it always freaks me out when a comment I make brings me out from under the radar. I posted on the alt.net list to a thread concerning the pro's and cons. Jeremy Miller posted an opinion on my comment, and I followed up with a comment on the post. As a reflection on all that, I'd like to say that I think that in priciple I'm ......

I've been working in organizations that adhere to some level of the CMMI for some time now. And we are trying to fit what we can of agile programming into our process, and hopefully are achieving better results while still keeping the structure required of our contracts. A long time ago I ran across this article which discusses some of the levels of ......

Chris Sells has been writing on working at home, and Scott Hanselman has as well. As for myself, my employer frowns on working at home, although I am on a laptop, and we do have a VPN. Several times I have gotten permission to work from home simply so I can focus on one project at a time and actually accomplish things. My normal course of action is ......

Earlier Jeff Brown posted some comments on some new features of MbUnit v3, which I responded to by how to answer the NUnit critics concerning isolation of test fixtures. Jeff responded with what I think is a pretty good answer. I'll have to think it through for a bit. I believe that my original question was not so much a question of the validity of ......

I have started looking at improvements to the NMock2 code with respect to writing a branch of the code in .NET 3.5. The availability of extension methods in C# 3.0 have solved a common code issue of mine where I want to use Dictionary.TryGetValue to see if there is a value in a dictionary for a given key and create a default if not. Which leads to the ......

I'm currently involved in getting mono to compile on Solaris 9, Solaris 2.5 and DEC Tru64 Unix. I'll be posting more about my experiences with this. Hopefully I can get it to work, because the projects I'm working on would be much better done in a cross-platform managed environment than having to worry about the details of C++ compatibility. If anyone ......

Currently I'm in the process of reviewing some code that was written and then had MbUnit tests written to back flush the requirements. Since I'm part of a more traditional shop, the code has already been peer reviewed. The tests, of course, revealed errors in the code that weren't caught as a part of the peer review; so the code was corrected and re-reviewed. ......

It is entirely possible for something to have too many features. In response to a question from a co-worker, we spent approximately 2 hours digging through the options and model structure of the Infragistics UltraGrid control to discover the way to get the bound rectangle of a row for a drag operation. While I get the desire for everything to be super ......

Today I had an issue where an application that as a mixture of .NET, VB6 and C++ code needed to be debugged. Since the component that I needed to look at was in the VB 6 portion, I attempted to debug from VB6 only to be met with a variety of bizarre errors. I don't have visibility into the rest of the application, so I continued with the .NET 2005 debugging ......
