Now blogging at aradhye.com instead of MVCdeveloper.net

I will be blogging at aradhye.com instead of mvcdeveloper.net. The main reason behind it was the name. I love MVC but if I wanted to blog about any other topic such as installing Windows 8 on Mac book pro, it didn’t make a whole lot of sense. How could I put a add customer method in merchants class especially after reading Uncle Bob's Clean Code ? So, I created more of encompassing domain ,a sort of a Util class if you will. More representative of me than a particular idea.

I took the opportunity to move over the blog to Orchard CMS in order to make the content publishing easier along with Windows live writer. MVCdeveloper.net was feature envied. I had quite a few things in development. I was always getting caught with whether to publish more content or make the channel more appealing and up-to-date. Orchard is open source and there are a lot of very good modules to available. Any of these can be used easily with very little to no modification. It will also help me to break the two activities of content publishing and contributing to github and some other projects.

I am still working on the site. None of those are too big to stop the content publishing at this moment.

Hopefully it makes sense to you as it did to me.

Happy thanksgiving! :)

This developer's life is inspirational

This developer’s life podcast by Scott Hanselman and Rob Conery has enlightened me in a several different ways. It refreshes me… it makes me feel more positive…more excited…more optimistic..more motivated..makes me think more inclusive than exclusive. It inspires me to do more development..try out more things.

On the podcast, some awesome guest mostly from the development world comes on and he/she talks about their life experiences. The way it is structured is very unique. It doesn’t have the one-on-one hackneyed interview pattern. It’s different in several ways. There are cool topics, different types of songs played, jokes; a fun experience in several different ways. It underlines and highlights the role developers/techies play in organizations. The pressures they are under and how they deal with it,their down time activities,etc. This is more about developer’s personality and of course his/her life. Certainly, most of developers can their own bit in it somewhere.

I like all of them but Pressure, Learn, Education and Abstraction are my favorites so far.

My favorite quote was about open source. It goes more or less like “Chefs always share their recipes but not everyone can execute it. So there’s no harm in open source.”
Some other podcasts I like to listen to are :
