Preview of Entile Notification Framework 9

Preview of Entile Notification Framework
My last post was an Introduction to the Entile Notification Framework for Windows Phone 7. I got a few requests from people who wanted to play around with it but felt I had some polishing to do first. Today I finally feel that it’s good enough to show to those that are most interested, so ...

Introducing the Entile Notification Framework
Update 2011-01-13: A first preview is now available. You can get it here! This post is an introduction to the (not yet publicly released) Entile Notification Framework for Windows Phone 7 (wow, I should work for marketing at Microsoft…). If you like what you see and would like to give it a go yourself, follow ...

Episode 2 – Injecting the context 2

Alright, it’s about time for the second post in my series on a reference architecture for back-end services. As you may recall, my last post covered how to build up Repositories using the code-only features of Entity Framework CTP 4. This time I’ll talk a bit about how to connect things together using dependency injection ...

Episode 1 – Repository with EF Magic Unicorn (CTP 4) 2

This will be the first episode in a series of posts that I hope I’ll be able to write in the next few weeks. I’m working on a reference architecture for back-end services that use a few of the new technologies in .NET Framework 4 (and some that are still in preview). This first post ...

Code Contracts for your Interface 5

So by now, you have probably heard a lot about “code contracts”, a new feature in .NET 4.0 that allows you to decorate your methods and properties with things like pre- and post conditions. I’ve seen them mentioned a lot and I’ve seen quite a few basic demos that explain the different types of contracts ...

New Twitter Id – New blog

So, I finally decided on a new Twitter id for myself. I’ve always felt that andlju is kind of boring and seeing how I do most of my problem solving while trying to go to sleep, CodingInsomnia seemed rather appropriate. Hopefully, this will also lead to an inspiration boost for me to do some proper ...

Cornerstone har en konferens på gång i sommar; Developer Summit 2010 på Nalen i Stockholm. Jag är inbokad sedan ungefär en vecka tillbaka! Många seminarier blir det och jag har rätt svårt att välja.. De kör ett antal olika teman (.Net/VS/TFS, Security, Metod, Webb, Mobile, Cloud och ett eget “spår” för Patterns & Practices). Tänkte ...

Unity interception performance 2

The past two years or so I’ve been working with a rather large team of developers on the latest incarnation of our bespoke web site platform here at Thomas Cook NE. We decided early on to use Unity and the Interception Extension at pretty much all layers across the entire site. One page view will ...

Windows Server 2008 as development platform

Well, this is going to be interesting. I’ve spent the day installing Windows Server 2008 on my brand new laptop at work. I was inspired by Mikael Deurell’s post about using Hyper-V etc. So far it’s been much easier than I expected. Pretty much all device drivers for my Compaq 8510w installed without any problems ...

Scrum Dashboard

If you’re a fan of Scrum and Team Foundation Server you’ll probably want to have a look at the Scrum Dashboard recently published on CodePlex by EPiServer. It looks very cool but unfortunately for us it uses the Scrum for Team System templates by Conchango instead of the “vanilla” MSF Agile templates that we’re using. ...
