5 Things You Didn't Know About Me (meme)

I got blog tagged (some chain-thing waving the blogs) by Anders Ljusberg (Ljusberg) and also saw a lot of other ‘5 things posts’ passing by so I gave it a go. Here a tip of the iceberg of things u prob didnt know:

1. Allthough I got involved in computers very early (C64, basic programming and a nice 8bit interface to develop my own lightshows ;-), good old ‘pokes’ ), I didn’t started my carrier as a software developer, I studied microbiology first and worked at that time as a waiter, milked cows and other ‘hardwork’ stuff. Also worked as a lightjokey in a club (working hrs where the same as nowadays :-) )

2. My first car was a green 1ltr Subaru justy which could fly if u drove it fast enough over the ‘bump’ on the way home from school.. I crashed it later on an early morning in the rain/snow :’-( R.I.P.

3. In contrast of developing/designing apps and sitting still all day, I like hiking through the mountains (going to visit Nepal at the end of march), back to basics and clearing the mind.

4. My first own place to live was a room (4mtr x 4mtr) in Utrecht (Ludgerusstraat) I rented it from a pilot and a stewardess couple who didn’t like it when about 8 drunk friends crashed the night on the floor, hehe...

5. Normally I don’t cook much (at least when you don’t count the microwave and the oven 10-15 min meals + 3 vitamin pills), but when I want to, I’m a pretty skilled cook J

Don’t know much direct related ‘tech-bloggers’ so here some ‘non-tech’ friends..

Fun with Singletons in C# 2.0

With the new generics support given by C# 2.0, some common design patterns can be generalized to work with any type. Exploiting the capabilities given by the type system, reflection, and generics, we can accomplish typesafe modular code customization and automation. Fun with Singletons is just a demonstration of the array of possibilities that C# 2.0 features introduce.

pers links, mapping & frameworks

Spring.NET is an application framework focused on helping build enterprise .NET applications.
http://www.springframework.net/index.html

The iBATIS Data Mapper framework makes it easier to use a database with Java and .NET applications. iBATIS couples objects with stored procedures or SQL statements using a XML descriptor. Simplicity is the biggest advantage of the iBATIS Data Mapper over object relational mapping tools.
http://ibatis.apache.org/


NHibernate for .NET
NHibernate is a port of Hibernate Core for Java to the .NET Framework. It handles persisting plain .NET objects to and from an underlying relational database. Given an XML description of your entities and relationships, NHibernate automatically generates SQL for loading and storing the objects. Optionally, you can describe your mapping metadata with attributes in your source code.
