About - Nemerle programming language official site

Nemerle is a general-purpose, multi-paradigm programming language for the .Net platform. It is as easy to learn and use as C# or VB.NET but Nemerle is by far more powerful. One may start using it as an advanced C# and then, as learning goes on, employ a range of cool features enabling metaprogramming and functional programming. The metaprogramming is based on macros bearing some similarity to Lisp. General information. Clean Architecture. In the weeks since I started talking about the need to clean up our architecture, I’ve noticed a surprising resistance to the idea.

Clean Architecture

Apparently the notion that it’s a good idea to hide the framework, UI, or database from the application code is not universally accepted. I first blogged about this topic here, I did some short video blogs here, here, and I did a whole cleancoders.com episode on the topic. I’ve also done several keynotes on the topic, the slides for which are here, and a video recording of which is here. One somewhat dissenting view, written by The Frustrated Architect in his coding {the} architecture blog is here.

Equipped with new powerful knowledge I have approached on of the TODO tasks on my plate – decouple email notification service from the main web application. First, the problem with the code that needed to be resolved. A customer is submitting content that has to be approved. Gallery -EventSourcing Store. KsigDo.

The scope of technology used in this example was kind of breath taking, yet Anoop was able to bring it all together, exampling it to us as we followed along...

KsigDo. A Knockout, SignalR, ASP.net, MVVM, MVC and EF all mixed together into a multiuser real time sync To Do" example

KsigDo = Knockout + SignalR To-do app. Source code is here in Codeplex, keep it handy.Real time data syncing across user views *was* hard, especially in web applications. Most of the time, the second user needs to refresh the screen, to see the changes made by first user, or we need to implement some long polling that fetches the data and does the update manually.Now, with SignalR and Knockout, ASP.NET developers can take advantage of view model syncing across users, that’ll simplify these scenarios in a big way, with minimal code.

This post discusses how to implement a real time to-do pad, which will sync data across users accessing the application. Sustainable Test-Driven Development: Test Reflexology, Part 1 (first post) Download the Podcast How unit tests inform us about our design As proponents of Test-Driven Development, we constantly seek to identify and point out the various ways that the effort one puts into writing tests will be of value to the development team.

Sustainable Test-Driven Development: Test Reflexology, Part 1 (first post)

As with most highly-powerful techniques, TDD tends to deliver multiple values across the entire development effort.One example is this: We all agree that design is important, but most people would say that ‘good’ design is hard to define. It's like pornography and the Supreme Court [1]; we cannot quite define it but we know it when we see it. Liz Keogh's blog » Scrum and Kanban: both the same, only different. When I started coaching Agile methodologies, I didn’t know how much I didn’t know.

Liz Keogh's blog » Scrum and Kanban: both the same, only different

I had come from Thoughtworks, a company whose tools and processes are mostly driven by Extreme Programming, aka XP. In that respect, most of what I learnt and coached was very similar to Scrum, albeit with different words. We called them iterations instead of sprints, and had stand-ups instead of daily scrums. We had planning meetings, but we didn’t make commitments – just estimates. Tech·Ed North America 2011. Agile software development emphasizes that some increment of business value be delivered every iteration.

How can this happen when your iterations are two weeks in length and you estimate it will take you two months just to design the database and the access layers? The answer is to think in slices,not layers. In this session,learn how to implement enough of each layer,including the database,to solve that iteration’s problems and provide value to the business. As we use good design principles,engineering practices,and tools,the architecture will emerge. Is it Time to Stop Estimating User Stories? Most new Agile teams transition from hours based estimates to relative estimation using story points, but do we even need estimates at all?

Is it Time to Stop Estimating User Stories?

Michael Dubakov suggests the following reasons why you should stop estimating user stories: You don’t waste time on estimation You shouldn’t explain to higher managers why it took soooo loooooooong You don’t give promises that are hard to keep You don’t put additional pressure on development team You focus on really important things Stephan Schwab, worries about how estimation can result in silos and prevent team based solutions: CQRS, l’architecture aux deux visages (partie 1) Entity Framework doit-il faire peur aux DBA ?
