Adventures in F# - F# 101 Part 8 (Mutables and Reference Cells)
Time for another adventure in F#, covering some of the basics of functional programming and F# in particular. Today we'll manage to look more at regular .NET integration and .NET programming. With the previous efforts, we've looked more at functional programming and in turn F# specific things, but want to show that you can do anything normally in F# that you can in C#. To me, F# is the perfect all-purpose language because it can do a lot of the things C# can do, but in turn, F# can do things much ......

xUnit.net RC3 Just Released
Well, Brad Wilson and Jim Newkirk must really be busy lately. After I talked about the release of xUnit.net RC2, just today, Brad announced the release of RC3. As always, you can find the latest bits here. This fixes a number of bugs and adds CruiseControl.NET and ASP.NET MVC Preview 2 support as well in addition to the Resharper 3.1 and TestDriven.NET support. For more information about it, check out Brad's post here. More or less, they are feature complete for version 1.0 and the only that I think ......

Lang.NET Videos Now Available
As you may have seen from previous posts, I have been covering Lang.NET and some of the interesting things that came from it. I've always been interested in compilers, DSLs and such, and I hope you found them interesting as well. I covered it these posts here: Adventures in Compilers - Building on the DLR DSLs, Compilers and the Irony of it All Ruby.NET is dead, long live Ruby.NET Lang.NET and Rolling Your Own Anyhow, they have finally posted the videos from Lang.NET and are now available here for ......

IoC and the Unity Application Block
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC and the Unity Application Block - Going Deeper IoC and the Unity Application Block Once Again IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore As many people who read this would know, I'm a big fan of IoC containers, more in particular Castle Windsor and StructureMap among my favorites. Anyhow, lately, I've been playing with the Unity Application Block from Microsoft Patterns ......

Covering NUnit 2.4.7
It's interesting that a flurry of releases of testing frameworks have been released lately with Gallio, xUnit.net and of course NUnit. Charlie Poole recently announced on a lot of the discussion boards I belong to recently that NUnit 2.4.7 was recently released. You can read all about what's been added here with the release notes. What's New and Interesting? What's interesting about this release? Well, NUnit no longer depends on log4net, thus getting rid of some dependency issues with regards to ......

IoC and Unity - Configuration Changes for the Better
In my previous post about Unity and IoC containers, I made note of some changes in the latest drop of the Unity Application Block. As Grigori Melnik, the PM of the Unity and Enterprise Library team noted, Unity should be released in its final form on April 7th, so stay tuned. In the mean time, the latest drop of Unity was on March 24th, so go ahead and it pick it up. Configuration Changes As I noted from above, the public APIs really haven't changed all that much. Instead, most of the efforts recently ......

IoC and Unity - The Basics and InterceptionIoC and Unity - The Basics and Interception
I realize it's been a while since my last post on Inversion of Control containers and looking at Unity as one of them. Since that time, Scott Hanselman linked to some of the comparisons that I did for IoC containers here. I'll be the first to admit that the look was a bit naive, but to get you all interested in looking at IoC container and how they can improve your applications. It was suggested here that my posts weren't a complete comparison, although in my previous posts I covered a lot of those ......

IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore
Update: IoC and Unity - The Basics and Interception As Grigori Melnik noted on my blog previously as well as his own, there was a brand new drop of the Unity Application Block as of March 4th. This by far was a huge update with a lot of breaking changes. That teaches me to use a CTP of any product and blog about it actively as it compares to other Inversion of Control (IoC) containers. Glad I didn't do a lot on ASP.NET MVC just yet but I have a few good projects going on the side with that now. Where ......

IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore I just wanted to revisit the whole Unity Application Block just once more to look at a few more things including handling parameters, instances and so on. If you hadn't seen, there was another source drop of Unity as of 2/26, so if you haven't picked it up, feel free to do so here. So, we're going to continue our look at DI and IoC containers as they pertain to different needs. I'm not going ......

IoC and the Unity Application Block Once Again
Update: Fixed code changed from CTP and More in the series: IoC Containers, Unity and ObjectBuilder2 - The Saga Continues IoC Container, Unity and Breaking Changes Galore After the reaction of my last post of talking about IoC and the Unity Application Block, I thought I'd include a few more samples of using Unity and how they compare with other IoC containers. I realized after my first one, that I didn't give any love to StructureMap and I'm going to fix that for a brief sample as well. I realize ......
