7 books for a .NET Summer reading list (2011 version)

In the previous years “n books for a .NET Summer reading list” used to be the title of the book list post. Now, in the last of my 4 posts with books suggestions I am back to the original title. In my introductory post I said I would have listed only a few web development on .NET books. In fact there are only 2. Web Development on .NET Professional ASP.NET MVC 3 While Professional ASP.NET MVC v2 was mainly an update of the original professional MVC1 book, the third remake, due to the nature of the new...

Scheduling post while on vacation: how did it go?

As you might have noticed if you followed my twitter stream, I spent the last two weeks in Hokkaido, doing some trekking and enjoying the onsen. But still 5 new posts appeared on my blog. This happened thanks to a feature of Subtext that allows posting in the future. Before leaving to Japan I was undecided about scheduling posts while I was on vacation for two weeks, but then I decided to try this experiment. But now I’m back and I wanted to ask you what you think of what I did: did you like the fact...

Jeff Atwood and Joel Spolsky in the TOP 100 Web Celebrities

TechCult, a famous blog about what’s going on in the Net world just published the list of the top 100 web celebrities. The standing is mainly based on how many results they have on Google. Pretty strange that Bill Gates or Steve Jobs don’t show up in this top 100, even though they influenced the web much more than Tila Tequila, Perez Hilton or  Beppe Grillo which are the top 3 web celebrities of the list. The list is full of web developers, Web2.0 startups’ founders, but only 2 from the .NET blogging space: ...

In The Lounge

As you might have noticed, a few days ago I added to my sidebar an ad space. The reason for the ad is that I joined the Lounge, an advertisement network on the .NET space with quite a few famous bloggers. I'm not in the same with them, since I don't have the same audience and influence, but in another room, the .NET small publisher room, together with Subtext mate and new MVP Steve Harman, "ASP.NET MVC in Action" co-author and CodeCampServer key contributor Ben Scheirman and a few more. When James Avery says: Simone Chiaretta is one of the developers of...

2007 year's book and Top 5 post

Already 10 days are gone in 2008 and I just realized I didn't have time to write a post looking back at what happened during last year: 15 days before the beginning of 2007 I quit the job for the company I worked for since 1998 in January I moved to Wellington, NZ, and started working for Calcium, a young and innovative software company in February I held my first presentation speaking in English at a Wellington UG meeting about NHibernate in March my old laptop started to slowly die in April I released the...

A funny picture from my camera blogged with Ecto

Here is a funny picture I just took off my digital camera: all my ice climbing tools, hanging drying with my clothes This is also a test of Ecto 3 beta: after my post of yesterday about my thoughts on the applications available on the Mac, I exchanged a few emails with Adriaan Tijsseling, the developer of Ecto, and he was very nice, and immediately released a new build (b20) that fixed the problem with the categories not being downloaded (actually it was a problem in Subtext MetaWeblog API implementation, that is missing the method blogger.getUserInfo). He also pointed...
