043 – Kyle Baley on ALT.NET after ALT.NET Beers II

One of Twelve Podcasts of Christmas 2008!

Kyle Baley: follow Kyle on Twitter

Earlier this year I was priviledged to be able to record a short podcast with Kyle Baley. I’m not usually so slow at getting content such as this produced and published online. 2008 has been different, I’ve spent a lot of time in London and as such have enjoyed / endured the travel that goes with that. I’ve also endured my first dental work in many years, costly financially and in time too. All things told, everything mounts up and something has to give…finding time has been hard! FWIW, a 15 minute podcast like this one takes roughly an hour to produce.

Kyle is one of the many well-respected CodeBetter.com bloggers. Recorded live outside Italian Graffiti (their web-site does need a face lift, yes?) near Soho, London, just after ALT.NET Beers 2, organised by Sebastien Lambla. There is some traffic noise, please grin and bear it, one has to grab podcasts with superstars as and when they arise, rarely is there a quiet room to hide in!

Photos of the event can be found here.

Kyle Baley and Donald Belcham are working on a book, Brownfield Application Development in .NET, published by Manning. This podcast was recorded in June 2008, the dates given in this podcast were accurate at the time of recording! Please visit the Manning web-site for further release information.

StructureMap is a Dependency Injection tool written in C# for .NET development. StructureMap is also a generic “Plugin” mechanism for flexible and extensible .NET applications.

Stop writing monolithic applications that make you feel like you have to move mountains to make the simplest of changes. Ninject helps you use the technique of dependency injection to break your applications into loosely-coupled, highly-cohesive components, and then glue them back together in a flexible manner. Dependency Injection: The Manning book can be found here. Follow Nate Kohari, creator of Ninject, on Twitter.

LLBLGen Pro, the #1 O/R mapper and data-access tier generator for .NET, generates a complete data-access tier and business façade/support tier for you (in C# or VB.NET), using an existing database schema set. In seconds. The generated .NET code is compiler-ready and can, being compiled by the .NET C# or VB.NET compiler, be used immediately by other applications.

Skills Matter supports the Agile and Open Source developer community, by organising free events, training courses, conferences and by publishing thousands of podcasts on ideas and technologies that drive innovation.
