and Jeremy Miller
recently recorded an episode on DotNetRocks
and was just posted today. Episode 333 "It's the ALT.NET Show" can be found here
. It's a great show that explains ALT.NET
for those who may not really know what it is outside of some of the arguments on the altdotnet mailing list
. This includes discussions on open source frameworks, agile practices, refactoring and so on.
It's great to see the reaction from this show at least from my perspective. To see the job we're doing from Josh Holmes
, Glenn Block
, me and others from within to reach out and also present ideas and bridge the gaps. It's been very rewarding to be a part of that.
We're only just a few days away from ALT.NET Open Spaces, Seattle
. All of those who are attending should have received a notice of such this morning. I'll be arriving in Seattle on Thursday afternoon to help set up for the event so if anyone wants to hang out beforehand let me know.
Bringing It To The Community
Anyhow, this weekend I did my best to bring some of those ALT.NET practices to the CMAP Code Camp
and we had a pretty good turnout. This time I talked about refactoring to patterns, dependency injection and inversion of control containers. I'm hoping to do the same for the Northern Virginia Code Camp coming up on May 17th. Brian Donahue
has been rather successful doing so with the Philly Code Camps
as well. That reminds me that I'm coming up there in mid-May to do an F# session. Should be a fun time.
