    Automation is your friend!


    It's way too late to turn back the hands of time; not to sound so melodramatic, but think about Ruby on Rails and Django, etc..., this is just the next step in web development and vital for .NET developers to compete.

    I have already used BLINQ to generate a large website.  The code is amazingly small and understandable to anyone who knows ASP.NET 2.0 and LINQ.  I have never seen better than BLINQ personally, including Rails. 

    However it is still up to developers to work against that to meet all the business requirements - the pages are far from done is most cases.  That's still a lot of work.  Now you can focus on business programming, instead of technology programming, however.

    I am just waiting for LINQ to be released to use it in earnest.




    I agree automation is my friend..... mine and my keyboard's Wink the only real fear is that "automation in the hands of the wrong people leads to terrible things".... I'm not saying i won't be using blinq (tho most likely just sqlmetal instead most of the time).....

    Lets just try and keep it kind of a dev secret.... when was the last time you let your DBA write Business Code (and i happen to prefer tech programming over business programming)....

  • Polita Paulus - BLINQ

    good interview and kewl tech.... My only concern is that some DBA somewhere will get the idea that they are all of a sudden a dev and BLINQ might end up becoming someone's solution to a business problem..... while that sounds great for the DBA's I can see me having a hard time explaining to the customer that after the magic from BLINQ that we aren't done yet....... excellent example tool but i see potential for abusing it.... plus i just watched a console app escentially do my job (ouch)......

    I understand that was not the intention but as devs it's scary to watch automation carry into the things that used to once be the soul domain of devs and architects ..... the stuff that put food on our tables.... Lets just  hope that the intended use is more often the case than the potential miss use......

    As an ASP/ASP.Net dev i'm in the class that still wants a few things to be a mystery to rest of the world where just asking /? doesn't give all the answers....

    hope that didn't all come off too negative, I just would like to know if this is the kind of stuff that gets talked about when things like this become reality?....

  • Jason Zander on the WinFX to .NET FX 3.0 rename

    See now it all makes sense.... hopefully now this means that in the future this kind of stuff will be made clearer upfront....good job explaining the differences.

    I'd say he already falls in that category....

    loved the bits of trivia tu.... <3 them cows!!!
  • Chatting about LINQ and ADO.NET Entities

    Really great video...... The deeper dives like the white boarding done here are great.... as a dev I personally really want to know whats going on under there as much as I can.... plus it really helps get a better understanding of exactly what it is I am asking to be done

    I would love to just sit and listen to Anders speak about the architecture for hours lol .....
  • Charlie Owen - Your first Media Center/Vista application (and a look at their secret room)

    I was so excited about MCML from my first post I forgot to mention the thing i heard Charlie say that still kinda leaves me wanting more from MCE..... 

    MCE only supports 2 tuners each for NTSC and HD.... This kinda leaves me hanging.... Its not inconceavable(sp?) to consider the notion of a MCE Server (especially now with x360 extender power)... having more than 2 tuners of any type running and recording television from all over.....

    I see it as a limitation that could  be avoided.... support for at least 4 tuners of any one type (8 in total) would be far more superior... with the hundreds of channels available to anyone now adays its not hard to believe there could be 3+ shows on TV at the same time that i may want to watch..... would also allow for better overlapping recording.....

    if say I'm recording a TV movie that starts @ 5 and ends @ 7 (5-7) and i want to also record CSI @6 (6-7)  and i like to record the 6'oclock news @ 6

    at the moment I can't  record all these programs and watch them later unless at least one of them is broadcast in HD over the air..... And i most certainly can't be watching live TV at all in that scenario

    now if I had an MCE server in a home with 4 people (mom, dad, 2 kids) its also not hard to consider that as a whole they may all want to record more just 2 shows at once.... Also if you are watching live TV at the time you can only record 1 other program..... with lots of people wanting to be on the centralized media experience that becomes almost impossible....

    Plus with the hauppauge PVR 500MCE its not hard to get 4 tuners in 2 PCI slots...

    just a thought guys

    Very cool vid. I'm way excited. haven't had a lot of time to play with MCE on Vista but I plan too at some point really soon. MCE is one of my personal favorite groups simply because its one of those products that I can really relate to wanting to use all the time.

    So happy about having MCML, as the hosted HTML model drove me crazy.

    They need to get you a better camera.

    The trick now is to get my boss to pay me to play with MCE Smiley
