In my role as a consultant, I don’t get to code as often as I’d like to anymore, which means that I don’t get to sit down and code 8 hours a day anymore. And when I do get to code, it’s not always the most exciting, but rather technology that’s been around since about, say… 2007 or so. So I get antsy every once in awhile and try to code a simple application using all the latest “stuff”.
Well, simple in the fact that I really don’t expect it to do much. I do, however, want to integrate a lot of different technologies – things that would make a project “right.” Here’s what I have planned for the near future:
- ASP.NET MVC (version/features TBD)
- Windows Azure (Web Role + Worker Role)
- Windows Azure Platform AppFabric
- Visual Studio Unit Test
- Pex & Moles
- Entity Framework 4
- Unity IoC
- Silverlight 4 (maybe even WPF)
Sorry, no build engine this time. It’s just me, so that would be a little more overkill than I’m prepared to handle, although psake sounds pretty interesting.
Seriously, as much as I hate to admit it, trying to figure out how all of these things fit together is quite a challenge. If I can simply write an app(s) that logs one in through the various UIs (and have it remember that I’m logged in) then I will consider it a great success.
