What’s up?

I know, I know.. I’ve been extremely lazy lately, at least when it comes to sharing knowledge with you guys. I guess the main reason for that is that I’m currently on parental leave which means that my days are not really spent researching, architecting and developing as much as they are spent entertaining Miranda… ...

How cool is this?

I’m currently writing this post on the express bus to Redmond using my iPod touch and the free WiFi provided on the bus. In my book it doesn’t get much cooler than that!

It seems Clarius Consulting have released a beta version of a pretty nice addition to Visual Studio, at least if you’re working with the Guidance Automation Toolkit.

Since the invention of partial caching in ASP.NET, we have been trying our best to implement it on our web pages. But without much luck. This post is a request, or I guess you could call it a “cry”, for help! The problem is that we create all our controls dynamically, and each page can ...

The new SOA

This is going to be confusing for me.. There’s a new SOA in town: Lord of the Rings Online: Shadows of Angmar (or SoA). Let’s just hope they’ll continue to use the abbreviation LOTRO instead..

Online course from 2xSundblad

I’ve just looked through a part of the preview of the coming online course from 2xSundblad called Architecting Service Oriented Systems – Overview. It’s Flash-based with a mix of video, audio and slides. Looks very promising and it will be available for a very reasonable $399 (if you register your interest early you’ll even get ...

The Agile pyramid

One of my favorite developer sites, Worse Than Failure (used to be called The Daily WTF), just published an article about Agile methodologies and why they suck. While I don’t agree with Alex it’s always fun when an analogy is turned upside down… The problem here is that the Pyramid analogy is flawed in the ...
