Hello from the mobile-me

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 10/31/2011

Today, with our super busy schedules, we’re badgered into producing (anything and everything). This is how our employees make sure to get as much as possible ROI (return on investment) out of you.

I’ve always felt that there was not enough time to consume and to learn in general. This was alway bugging me because I felt that my value was declining with each and every passing day and I was afraid that something new in the world will be born without me learning abou it.

I hope that this situation is going to improve going forward. Recently I got myself an iPad. This allows me to get more content consumption on the road and on a couch.

With this post I’m, in fact, testing a WordPress application for iPad.

If it works as expected, will try to start posting on my blog the links to noteworthy content and, as usual, you are welcome to comment.

NWT – .Net Web Toolkit

Posted by Igor Moochnick on 10/26/2011

Now, after waiting for quite some time, we finally can implement the real solution for .Net <-> javascript conversion and bridge the impedance gap in the projects that heavily rely on the powerful rich web UI.

Currently we have solutions like Script# and CofeeScript and others. The pros in cons of these systems have been discussed countless times (ex: HanselminutesJavaScript is Assembly Language for the Web: Semantic Markup is Dead! Clean vs. Machine-coded HTML).

With the recently released project Roslyn (or alternatively Mono Compiler Services) it is possible to have a clean solution to the problem:  I write my data and data model in a language and an environment that allow solid validation and refactoring.

I’m ironing out some kinks in my implementation and, as soon as it’ll be in a stable state, I’m going to release a NWT (NeWT) project that will provide a similar to GWT (Google Web Toolkit) functionality.
