Following up on my last post and on reading NHibernate 3.0 Cookbook I decided to download the latest NHibernate bits (v. 3 CR1), and do a comparison to Microsofts Entity Framework. NHibernate and Entity Framework are what most developers reguard as the top Object Relational Mappers out there. So looking at how they stack up is pretty important in order […]
So you heard about NMoneys. You looked and the information and it caught on you. It happens that you are a .NET developer indeed. You are welcome to go on reading, but it is really not for you. You already know it. So you have not heard of NMoneys. It does not ring any bell. It happens that you are […]
A few weeks ago we got a copy of the NHibernate 3.0 Cookbook by Jason Dentler, which I was really looking forward to because of the scattered nature the existing documentation for NHibernate. The word Cookbook really says a lot of how the book is structured, and how it should be used. The book consists of a bunch of recipes on how to cook with NHibernate – terrible wordplay, I know, and I am sorry 🙂 So basically it can be a good idea with a quick readthrough, and then it will serve as a place to look up solutions to various scenarios you will be dealing with when using NHibernate.
NuGet (pronounced: “new get”) which was at first called NuPack is a package management system that Microsoft have released in a CTP2. The cool thing about NuGet is that it makes it easy to add open source components to your solution, as well as providing you with a simple way to distribute your own components. So next time you need […]
After some years taking from the community of OSS and not giving back a lot, it has finally happened. My first OSS project has been released. Go on, OSS community, and take something from me and improve the heck out of the project!
… not sure myself, but certainly it is a sneaky creature. I will not talk about all ORMs (as if I could) since I want to exemplify on what gave me grief. I was using Linq2SQL to perform some “simple” queries in an application. I wish not to discuss: whether Linq2SQL is an ORM at all. For me it is […]
A little over a month ago I went to a meeting at Trifork about Windows Phone 7, where my initial expectations got challanged. As an enthusiastic .NET developer the prospect of Microsoft “getting in to the game” of phone development is incredibly interesting. I did however leave the meeting feeling a little subdued, because quite of bit of talk ended up revolving around missing features and features that are not available in Denmark.
Hi readers. My company is setting up a blog. Hence, from now on, I will be publishing most of my content to it as well as to my own personal one. Needless to say, what I write is representative of my own opinions and points of view, and by no means reflect on my employer.
