13 books for a .NET Summer reading list

As last year, before going on holiday I’m list some of the books that are in my reading list. It’s not entirely about .NET book, but will also cover other languages not related with .NET development at all, like Scala or Arduino. JavaScript and jQuery I think JavaScript is still the most unknown language among all the ones used to write web applications: mostly due to the fact that it lives in the limbo between developer and designer. JavaScript: The Good Parts It seems incredible, but I never read this “must have” book about the...

Is IronRuby being un-funded just the tip of an iceberg?

Today when I woke up and started skimming my twitter feed, I was stuck by a flood of comments about IronRuby being somehow discontinued. Not really killed, but, as Jimmy Schementi says in his post that announces his change of job, moved out of the pool of opensource projects that Microsoft is directly funding. Justin Etheredge already commented on what it means for IronRuby itself, but I want to analyze the fact from an another angle. Maybe I'm just paranoid, and unfunding IronRuby is just... unfunding IronRuby, but the facts are leading me to think (and might lead also other people...

Ruby <3 .NET: recordings and material are online

I just published the first two recordings from the Italian ALT.NET Conference of last Saturday. The first, and probably more interesting because the session was in English, is Ivan’s one about IronRuby, titled “Ruby <3 .NET”. Ruby <3 .NET from Piyodesign on Vimeo. And the slides and demo are available on the SVN repository for the conference. I also published the last session of the day, that was about Fitnesse and acceptance tests in general, held by Jacopo Franzoi. Here you can see the video (in Italian, sorry) ...

Italian ALT.NET Conference take 3

It took us a while to organize it, but finally we made it: the 3rd Italian ALT.NET Conference will take place in Milano on January 24th 2009. We will have Ivan Porto Carrero, author of IronRuby in Action, come down from Bruxelles and talk about IronRuby, and then there will be some talk on TDD, DDD, user stories, mocking and that kind of stuff. You can help shape the meeting: just go to ugialtnet group and vote at the poll. If you want to attend, please register at altdotnet.org/events/italy. I want to thank David Laribee...

Ivan Porto Carrero interviewed on InfoQ

My friend Ivan, blogger, writer and coder extraordinaire has been interviewed on InfoQ, a main-stream enterprise development portal, about his new opensource project IronNails. Ivan started this project a few days ago because, while working on same samples for his book about IronRuby, he had this vision of a Rail like development for WPF and Silverlight applications, based on the MVC pattern. And here it is: announced on his blog (which, by the way, has a new awesome skin), published on git, and got a lot of media attention. Read the complete article here: Talking with Ivan Porto Carrero about IronNails. Congratulations Ivan! IronRuby, Ivan,...

It will be published by Manning and, as always with them, a Early Access Preview is available. Congratulations Ivan for your first book!! IronRuby, Ivan

IronRuby book by Ivan Porto Carrero

I thought I already mentioned it previously, but probably the things that happened to me in the last month made me forget to mention it. But going to the point, my Belgian Kiwi friend Ivan is starting to write a book about IronRuby. Congratulations Ivan!! Technorati tags: IronRuby, Ivan, book
