Just A Quick Note To Say What I am Up To

Its been a while since I did any serious blogging, I have not forgotten about my blog, far from it, I have just been quite tied up writing up articles of late, Cinch V2 kept me pretty occupied.

But anyway here is a list of things that I am up to, right now

Main Focus

Being a dad

Secondary Focus

So what else am I up to, well I am in the middle of creating a pretty large ASP .NET MVC project that is a tool that I think may help many developers. I don’t want to say too much about it, but I honestly think it will be a really really useful tool. What I can say is that you will be able to interact with the website right from inside VS2010 using a VS2010 addin, and that I will be releasing the code onto Codeplex, as another opensource project, and I will write it all up over at codeproject anyway, as the web site design uses some nice AJAX JQuery along with ASP .NET MVC, which I think might interest some folk by itself, and I shall also be talking about how to create a VS2010 add in, and of course I will explain what the tools job is, and hopefully you lot will see that it could be useful to you too.

And Finally

I have also been asked to be a technical reviewer for a friends book, which I will commence work on next week.


So as you can see I am still busy, its just that I tend to work on larger things these days, and that takes up more time, which leaves less time for blogging.

I do have a plan for a IPhone like control which I will write for WPF, when I find a spare minute.


Anyway just wanted to let you all know that, I am doing stuff, and that is what I am doing.


Rx Article Out

I am just about to start a big open source hopefully useful project, so may not be blogging/writing articles for a while, so I thought there was just time to sneak a small one in there.

So I picked something that I have dabbled with a bit but never given my full attention which is Rx (Reactive Framework), so I am pleased to announce a new article on the basics of Rx, which covers things like

  • Using Subject<T>
  • Using IObservable.FromEvent
  • Using IObservable<T> within a using statement block
  • Using Rx to simplify Async calls
  • Using Rx events as Exports to MEF

If this sounds like it would be of interest to you, you can read the full article over at, using this link:
