I haven't blogged in a long time, so I guess its time I provide some type of update. First, I'm approaching my last day of work at my current employer and I'm still looking for my next gig to start on August 11. I've had a couple of interviews, with another one later today, but most people haven't really wanted to talk until lately since they always want someone “immediately” and I had 60 days notice. Hopefully now that I've got just 2 weeks left that will no longer be an issue, and so far I've been very picky and things still appear promising at this point.
On the .NET side, I've been doing lots of “research” lately, some of which I can tell you about, and some of which I can't tell you about. What I can't tell you about is how great the next generation of certain things appears to be. What I can tell you is that some tools that are already here are also pretty good, including DeKlarit and CodeSmith for code generators, and EntityBroker, Norpheme, and Sisyphus for O/R mappers. I just finished a review of DeKlarit, and I'll be looking at the others very soon -- and the stuff I can't tell you about as soon as I can.
