In my spare time when not working as a software developer, I contribute to a couple open source projects that I am quite proud of:

  • ELMAH (Error Logging Modules and Handlers) is an application-wide error logging facility that is completely pluggable.

  • URL Rewriter a .NET module which mimics the Apache mod_rewrite syntax for support in IIS and Casini

  • Fluent Cassandra a .NET client for accessing the NoSQL Apache Cassandra database.

Oh yeah and I also wrote a book:

comment Where to put profile test?
Is this operating system specific or agnostic? Because there are many OS specific tools that do this that you could include with your app.
comment Servicing background tasks on a large site
Yeah that is sort of the same solution I used, however I serialized the whole object in to the database as a binary and then pulled them out to execute. I used Cassandra as my persistent storage and Task Scheduler as my CRON scheduler for the commandline app that would run and execute the tasks.
