We just put up a really cool video showing how to build a Model-View-Presenter (MVP) mail app with CodeRush and Refactor Pro! for Visual Studio.
You get to see the step by step transformation and evolution of code for the MVP pattern and you get to see it happen pretty quickly and easily since it is being done with the help of CodeRush and Refactor Pro!
This started out when I convinced Kim to do a presentation at the September Israel Visual Basic User Group meeting. Since he uses CodeRush and Refactor Pro! in his every day programming, he decided to show how quickly he could develop and refactor code to have it evolve. He also wanted to develop something non-trival as his demo - so he decided on a simple email reader.
Since he was going to do this demo live and from scratch, he made sure to practice before the presentation. One way he came up with to see how it looked was to record it and then watch the recording. He enjoyed it so much, that he made some changes, added background music, and we decided to share it with the world.
So, this New York Times article claims that mashups are about to go mainstream - do you agree ?
Have you been playing with mashups?
Have you build a "real" or at least really usefull mashup application?
Previous posts of mine on mashups:
After reading this PCWorld article
, I think you'll have no choice but to agree that the parallels between Microsoft and Apple are striking and compelling. After that, we can have a
discussion on whether that is good, bad, or capitalism at its best (or worst) ...
Yes, Shlomi Ohayon was the winner of a free copy of DevExpress's CodeRush and Refactor! Pro toolset at this month's IVBUG (Israel Visual Basic User Group) meeting.
A special thanks goes to DevExpress for donating this license as a raffle prize, and Mark Miller in particular, for making the extra effort in arranging for it to happen for me.
The occasion for the special raffle prize was that the first presentation at the User Group meeting, by Renaissance's Kim Major, was “Power Coding with CodeRush and Refactor Pro!” - after getting the audience so excited about using these great productivity tools for Visual Studio, it seemed only fair to let one attendee walk out of there with a free copy :-)
So, Shlomi, now that you'll be able to code so much faster with CodeRush, what are you going to do with all of your extra free time ?!
