The Great Giveaway

So, I wrote an entry for The Great Giveaway, and I won! My article will be posted on Friday (tomorrow) so check it out.

I won!  I won!

Thanks to the folks.  I am truly flattered, surprised, and happy to be getting some kickin’ prizes.

For what it’s worth, I really did make the jump to things ALT.NET while working on a new project, which I think made it much easier.  It’s hard to pick this stuff up without a real goal in mind.  For example, I’ve been trying to  become more dangerous with Ruby, but I just can’t make much of it stick b/c I have to make up my own things to write.  I think Ruby is very cool, and it’s really the only dynamic language that I’ve futzed with (someone say “F#”?) but all my “work” work is .NET, HTML, javascript, etc.

I don’t really consider myself part of the .NET elite, whoever that is.  I feel like I blue-collared my way onto the bus.  So, if you find yourself trying to make the jump and can’t get going, drop me a comment.  I can remember being there.  Actually, I am still there in many ways, which is why I am such a great candidate for continuous improvement.

Great Repository/Unit of Work/ActiveRecord Series

Ryan Lanciaux has probably one of the best series on setting up the Repository and Unit-of-Work patterns with Rhino Commons, NHibernate, Castle, and Windsor. He is also using ASP.NET MVC once his repository is all set up. Check it out.
