A day of Sitecore – with Rocks n’ Stuff

Today the 9th of December I spend the day in Copenhagen attending the sitecore partner seminar as well as a technical deep dive of sitecore’s e-commerce offerings. We just recently became partners, so we were interested in what the roadmap is as well as what the commerce modules offer. First part – should have worn a tie The partner seminar started with a “what’s new and cool” segment. As usual these things are targeted towards sales people, so as a developer I thought it was very superficial and all about shiny features and buzzwords to be honest. What I did take away from it was that there is done quite a bit of work on streamlining and performance. To be fair I missed the first part because my train was delayed – big surprise for DSB that it has been snowing apparently.

Hvad er en 2D stregkode – en 2D barcode?

Offline reklame

Fra Offline til Online – og tilbage igen...

Vi har været vant til stregkoder på de varer vi køber som forbruger uden dog at opfatte det som andet end et redskab, der hurtiggører ekspeditionstiden ved indkøb.

Med de nye 2D stregkoder vil denne opfattelse ændre sig markant hos forbrugerne.

Her behøver man nemlig ikke en professionel scanner for at kunne scanne den. En almindelige mobiltelefon med kamera kan anvendes som scanner. Dvs. pludselig kan stregkoden på et produkt give en masse yderligere oplysninger til den almindelige forbruger. Som forbruger skal man blot scanne den og får så informationen vist på mobilen i form af tekst – eller mere interessant, som et link til online indhold i form af dynamisk tekst, billeder, lyd og video. Scenarier som at scanne et produkt og tjekke prisen i andre butikker via en online prissammenligningsservice, få yderligere forbrugsinformation, se instruktionsvideo eller brugermanual, deltage i en konkurrence etc. er der allerede mange eksempler på i det danske marked.

Review: NHibernate 3.0 Cookbook

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.
