Using Razor as an Embedded Report Engine

When the Razor view engine for ASP.net MVC 3 was announced, I was not all that excited. It is nice, and a bit more compact, but didn’t seem to offer anything that special, especially compared to some of the other view engines that are out there. Fast-…

Machete – A scripting runtime for .NET

In an attempt to overcome by perfectionism I’ve decided to open source my long term side project Machete for the world to see. Machete is my own dialect of the ECMAScript 5 standard or as it is more commonly called JavaScript.

Procedure expects parameter error from SqlCommand

I was recently asked for some help with a very strange situation involving SQL Server and a .NET application using SqlCommand calls. It was thought to be a problem with SQL Server and in particular, sp_execute not being formed correctly.

Raleigh Code Camp Followup

Saturday started off cold and rainy, but it didn’t matter because, for over 100 of us, there were more important things going on. Namely sessions ranging from the one I presented, Unit Testing, to specific C#, jQuery, database, ALM, Silverlight, Ruby, and Python topics. In fact there were so many specific topics and I heard so many good things about all of the sessions that I wish I could have twinned or tripled myself to attend them all.

CQL From Visual Studio With NDepend 3

For the last few months I’ve had the pleasure of working with NDepend version 3. Most of my development at home is on linux these days, so I haven’t used it as much as I’d like, but I have been using it to poke around in various codebases and see what…

Some Thoughts on Session Management

The last time I did a post on NHibernate (or any post for that matter – I guess I’ve been a bit busy) Ben asked a question about what I ended up using for session management in the application I’ve been working on. I guess I could come out and answer it, but I’d hardly […]

Two Years With NHibernate – Lessons Learned

I realized the other day that it’s been nearly two years since I wrote a series of posts as I was learning to use NHibernate for data access. I haven’t really blogged a whole lot about NHibernate (I leave that to our resident expert, Chris) but I’ve certainly been working with it a bit. And […]
