JB shared some of the recent blog posts he's been working on:

Wizards of Smart podcasts (10:48)

Since our last meeting there have been 2 episodes of Wizards of Smart.

Episode 3 – Testing : http://www.theabsentmindedcoder.com/2010/05/wizards-of-smart-episode-3-testing.html

Episode 4 – Code Reviews, Work Environment, Developers : http://www.theabsentmindedcoder.com/2010/05/wizards-of-smart-episode-4.html

Ruby on Rails (13:00)

JB talked a bit about his experience this week with Ruby on Rails. In particular he pointed out how he enjoyed the migration functionality.

(23:00)Alper pointed out that c4mvc also has a session on some .net tools for migration :

(49:00)JB also point out the Dev Chix wiki for learning Ruby on Rails : http://wiki.devchix.com/index.php?title=Server_2003

The guide walks through every step from installing Ruby, rails gems, setting up git, heroku, and pushing your app to heroku. It’s a great guide for those new to rails (like me!)

Domain Driven Design(20:30)

Ed asked about DDD for everyday apps. JB then fumbled around and gave a high level talk on how to apply some DDD principles to everyday code. He hopes to work on a presentation on the subject because he finds it an interesting perspective.

Here are some DDD resources :

Jimmy Nilsson’s book : http://www.amazon.com/Applying-Domain-Driven-Design-Patterns-Examples/dp/0321268202/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1274981635&sr=8-2

Linq(30:48)

JB walked through some linq examples that can be found in his learning C# project in my Learning Repository :http://github.com/RookieOne/Learning

We looked at Select, my pet peeve of using a Where and then FirstorDefault, and also how to use Any instead of Count to verify if a list is not empty.

JB took a poll and there was a lot of interest in doing more Linq best practices and techniques. He is working on a presentation as well and it was nice to see there was a good deal of interest.

Houston Techfest(37:37)

JB mentioned the Houston Techfest again and discussed some potential presentations Claudio and he might be doing.
