For that “keeping up” category entry this week I’ve hit up a few web site pages that have current topics of concern.
The first I dug up was “Creating a managed service factory” by Martin Hinshelwood. Martin does a great job of laying out an interesting idea for managing multiple services via a factory. Read it, it is interesting (I’m still processing and groking what is going on here).
While reading through some of Martin’s material I stumbled into an entry on “hosted TFS pilot program” by Jim Lamb. With the problems I have had with personally hosted TFS servers, and my return to Subversion and other solutions, I’d love to have access to a reasonably priced TFS hosted solution. As a matter of fact, it would RULE!
On another topic, while checking out the latest Code Project e-mail I received I discovered another code generator I had not seen before. It is called Smart Code and it is open source! I dug a little into the article and discovered it is maintained by a company called Kontac. The produce business rules management software and other tools. Check out Kontac‘s website for Smart Code.
The last article I read through was a write up on the ole’ trusty Command Pattern titled “Behavioral Patterns: Writing Command Pattern with C#” by Francesco Carata.
