Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

I guess they all jumped ship, and joined the PHP bandwagon, along with Microsoft. smile

Yeah, right!  I'm still here.

I've been doing some really fun stuff with Microsoft's latest AJAX framework and ComponentArt's latest Web.UI for AJAX.  Also getting into the new Windows Workflow Foundation.  Exciting times to be an ASP.NET developer, I say!

All in good fun. I only mock that which I do not understand. wink

I think they all came over here to Ruby land wink

Did he just use exciting and ASP.NET in the same sentence?

Ah, come on guys!  It's really not that bad! smile

Speaking of Ruby (which I know has gotten the interest of a lot of .NET developers), I don't know if you any of you have seen SubSonic for ASP.NET.

Still here, I've just been very busy with client work.  No one has posted any questions here, so its been hard to try and answer any!

Subsonic has a lot of potential. A former coworker of mine has helped with bug fixes in subsonic, but said Rob has been pretty busy and hasn't been giving Subsonic the boost it needs to be truly production ready.  I may give it a shot for a few prototypes I'd like to build. My friend said his clients have been impressed at the speed in which he can give them a working screen.

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

Still working with .NET a little here and there.  Not too happy with the horrid code the controls put out.

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

I've just accepted a new job which is for .Net. I know what you purists are thinking smile but I'll still be doing as much PHP and RoR as I can.

Chris: So you say, but I bet in two months, you'll have the Windows logo tattooed on your forehead.

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

Heh, maybe. But then again maybe not. I'm starting to get into Mono, so I'll soon have a penguin with a .aspx file extension wink

Hey, if you're looking for a good resource on ASP.NET and Mono, Joe Audette is the expert.  He's the author of mojoPortal, which was designed from the beginning to run on Mono.

ksollen,
You may want to check out ASP.NET's control adapters... I haven't tried them out myself, but they give you control over what the various .NET controls put out and allow you to change the rendering of the HTML.

http://www.asp.net/cssadapters/ (for css)

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

I'm using the asp.net control adapters right now in a project an they are a huge benefit.  There's an example on the site referred to above that shows the code before and after that is produced by the .net framework and the css adapters make a huge difference in the quality of the code output.

Ya, umm, someting I may have to learn on top of ASP.NET  Futures--> has  Iron Python and JScript. I can see ruby on its way Iron Ruby. I am just glad J# didn't kick off.

"Dynamic Languages Support in ASP.NET

In ths release, support for dynamic languages in ASP.NET expands on the earlier support for IronPython for ASP.NET. Support for dynamic languages in ASP.NET is built on the Dynamic Language Runtime (DLR), a new platform currently under development at Microsoft. The DLR simplifies hosting dynamic languages on the Common Language Runtime.

Two dynamic languages are now hosted on the DLR: IronPython and Managed JScript."

What about F# http://research.microsoft.com/fsharp/fsharp.aspx?0sr=a


Good stuff but more to learn.

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

I find it interesting that everyone is  talking about dynamic languages again and now we are coming full circle.  Didn't we already go through all that in the late 90's with ASP, ColdFusion, etc. ?

Re: Where did all of my .NET ers go?

Yeah, just when I thought the days of template-style spaghetti code were over, somebody goes and does something like ProMesh.NET!

I am still in favor with true opp and seperating layers: design, data, business, and such. It takes longer but saves money in the long run.
