This week I went with two colleagues to get certified in using the PreCom framework, which is developed by Pocket Mobile. So we spent two days at Vertica office in Ballerup, learning about the API and how to install and configure a PDA to run PreCom. What is PreCom? The PreCom framework consists of 5 building blocks on top of the Compact Framework. In decending order of importance they are: communication, storage, updates , logging and hardware.
Vi møder det fortsat i vores arbejde med at lave e-handelsløsninger for vore kunder – dog mindre ofte end tidligere: Bekymringen ved at etablere en direkte salgskanal til slutbrugeren, når man nu har sin etablerede salgskanal i den fysiske verden. Vil den nye online kanal kannibalisere de fysiske forretninger ?
For godt en måned siden tog DR programmet So Ein Ding den nye Windows Phone 7 under kærlig behandling. En gennemgang, der ikke var præget af klassisk begejstring. Nu har jeg så selv haft fornøjelsen af Windows Phone 7 i godt en måneds tid i form af min Samsung Omnia 7. Derfor er det nu tid til min egen personlige […]
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.
Gimme gimme gimme In the previous Battle of the ORM’s post I looked at setting up and configuring NHibernate and Entity Framework. So the next step is to get down to business and look at querying – the most important part of an ORM. First I need to address that the Entity Framework CTP5 has been released. This means that […]
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 […]
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.
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 […]
