Philly Code Camp Registration Open
Registration for the Philly Code Camp on January 12th is now open. I will be presenting "Entry Level Event Models". It is a part of my "Entry Level" series that will attempt to get "the willing" up to speed on fundamental architectural, design and development practices. I'm psyched to kick off 2008 with a code camp presentation. This should be a good one, so go register now! --chaz ......

Bad Tutorials
As many of us do from time to time, Mike Nicholes had a rant on his blog. Most rants are just useless noise that makes the author feel better. But in Mike's case, he really hit the nail on the head! Nothing is truer than Mike's statement; “I don't like the hours I used to waste spewing out Typed Datasets and binding them to Web Forms and then thinking that I was doing Enterprise development because Microsoft documentation had tutorials online that used the word "Enterprise". “ Hey all ......

What's in a directory structure?
Untitled Page What's in a directory structure? Well a lot. I tend to create a directory and source control structure that reflects my architecture. It is just another way of allowing the domain to blend into every aspect of your development. So here it is plain and simple... The top folder "CodeCampSourceControl" is the root for the version controlled projects both on the hard disk and in the source control system. The two subsequent folders "Projects" and "Solutions" are rather self explanitory. ......

NJ Code Camp II... Success!
Well as I've come to expect after a Code Camp I am recharged and psyched about programming again. Like NJ Code Camp I, I met a lot of great people and made some new friends. I have to say that I'm a bit shocked that there was more controversy in my “Down with Datasets!” session than my session on “Living in an Out-Sourced World”. I appreciate the honest and open dialog in both sessions. I received some great challenges to my stance on using custom objects over datasets. I ......

Calling all Jersey Geeks
Help! I so desperately want to present at NJ Code Camp II on June 3rd. But what? I am kicking around a couple of ideas and want to know what would get you to my session? Here are some ideas I've been kicking around... 1. One or more Application Blocks in the Enterprise Library - Code demo Just a display of how to incorporate these in your code.2. Fun with Serialization - Code demo Show multiple ways to serialize and deserialize your objects to/from disk on a fat client.3-A. Down with Datasets! - ......

Entry Level Enterprise
I don't know if the term “Entry Level Enterprise“ has been used before. If it has I apologize to the originator and I respectfully yield credit to the individual(s) who used it before me. I will be using Entry Level Enterprise a lot. To me it is a key component of seeing IT in the US survive. It is about helping our brethren of all coding persuasions to identify, understand and utilize tools and methodologies for developing Enterprise Level solutions. Some very simple examples are Test ......

NJ Code Camp - An Honor and a Privilege
Update: My presenations are now up on the NJ Code Camp Site. I don't really think the Power Point does the presentation justice, but it's there. Thanks to the many talented and wonderful people that attended NJ Code Camp 2005 this Saturday. This was my first time presenting at a Code Camp and the experience exceeded my every expectation. I came away with a lot of new ideas and I'm really excited to continue working with the NJ developer community. A special thanks to Rob Jackson (Microsoft), Scott ......
