generally doing everything related to c#, including sharepoint, biztalk, infopath, vsto (excel, word), asp.net, winforms, wpf, wcf, sql, xml/xsd/xslt, serialization.

enjoying playing around with monodevelop because i have a macbook pro, but not very seriously. xcode is actually a pretty nice break from c#, while monodevelop sometimes feels like work (sometimes).

currently designing a new kind of a simplistic reporting engine (in slo-mo). maybe it will be the ssrs-killer i've been dreaming about...

comment How should I behave as a developer in a project that's headed for failure?
@FrancescoFeltrinelli: you probably have a point. But a part of me thinks that I wouldn't want to lose focus on finding opportunities for personal improvement during times of crisis. It's amazing what we can learn when faced with a crisis, and how this tempers us to succeed in greater challenges further down in life.

comment Scratch - why do schools teach students a language that is not used anywhere else?
@NimChimpsky: do you think it's feasible to teach children who are 8 years old, java, C#, C++? Scratch targets 8-16, but I would agree with you that a 16-yr old being unable to learn java is a stretch. I mean, look at the 17 yr old kid who sold his app to Yahoo and became an instant millionaire...

comment What should I do when waiting for a review?
Yup. And code reviews are done against a changelist these days. Rejected changelists get backed out (that's the nuclear option), or defects get raised. We want to throw the commits against the CI as soon as possible, per McConnell's Code Complete.
