Geeks With Blogs
No Fun Intended Shoo! You are debugging the crap outta me! Open Source
This blog is moooooooving....

There is no better time to start a new blog than the start of a new year. My interest in .NET has been waning for a while now. I know GWB is a technology community, not just a .NET community but I think it best to have my own site and the like.

I want to thank Jeff Julian and John Alexander for the outstanding community and allowing me to set up shop here. Keep in touch.


Here is my new blog.

Open Source Intimidation
I was chatting with former NTeam-er Jonas Antonsson a few weeks ago and the topic of why finding developers for open source projects is so difficult. I guess finding those interested is relatively simple but actually getting contributions is the difficult part. Of the 50 that signed up for NTeam, only eight that I can count have contributed. This struck me as very strange and I mentioned it to Jonas and his response was that most developers are intimidated by the complexities of open source projects. ......

Yes, I am a slacker
I am aghast at my lack of posts lately but I have a few things going on that are taking most of my time up. NTeam - We are really moving along. The project design is almost all done and the coding is about to commence. I love design and would not dare tackle a project of this size without some semblance of a goal in mind but I can truly understand why some of the great minds out there really loathe big design up front. We have NOT went at NTeam with BDUF but sometimes it seems that way. I guess the ......

Interesting SOA Approach
Fellow NTeamer Ron Buckton passed this link from Rocky Lhotka concerning Message-based WebMethod overloading as a possible approach for the NTeam architecture and I really like the idea. Most importantly, it works. My only complaint is the same one Rocky brings up: it is not as clean as I would like. There is also an accompanying article from Bill Wagner. Unfortuanately, there was no follow-up on Wagner's initial post as promised that I could find ......

No port of Indigo to MONO?
I found this kinda strange. In a way I don't blame Microsoft's stance. I want to keep moving forward and open source projects will never be able to keep up but a port at some time surely wouldn't be out of the question, right? Read the full story here.

The NTeam Front Five
During an NTeam group chat tonight, we got sidetracked and started talking size. We could form a decent NFL front line....almost. No names, though, I don't want a letter bomb. Do guys really care about that crap? 6'7” 282 <- Me 6'4“ 250 6'2“ 250 6'3“ 270 6'2 270 Some one proposed our new motto as 'NTeam, we are coming to eat you.' That may not be the right message to send but you get the idea ......

NTeam Mentioned in June 15th Edition of SD Times
You can download the issue here (pdf). Page 25. It is more of a VSTS/James Avery article but NTeam is mentioned at the end. Apparantly, and I didn't know this, NTeam is based on James Avery's tool list. I am glad someone told me. Also, I am glad that the reporter talked to the project team before making a huge jack*ss out of herself.

A Very Good VSTS Interview with Rick LaPlante
The article is LaPlante makes two extremely good points in the article. First, Microsoft IS NOT new to Team Development, even if it has only been internal. I can't imagine a more difficult project to manage than Office or Windows. Second, that modeling will become commonplace for all developers. Has anyone else noticed that before .NET, Microsoft spent a lot of time holding the hands of about half the developers. They are not cutting those ......

It was bound to happen: MSIL to Java ByteCode
Well, it shouldn't be a suprise. I know this has been going around for a couple of days now but where is the tool that does the opposite? ByteCode to MSIL? Now that would be useful.
