Long Time No Post

It has been very long since my last post...it's always bad when you stop writing in your blog, but to be honest, sometimes the free time makes you good. I spent some time in the beautiful beaches of Costa Rica and had some quality time with the family.

After that, I must say I have been really...but really busy...which is good since all the layoffs and stuff, so happy to be working a lot in very cool and big projects. What I have been working with? Well a lot of LINQ for sure, which every day I like more. Also a lot of Enterprise Level, highly scalable, robust and highly available C#3.0 .NET practices for multi user applications and big web sites. One of the latest acquisitions on my repertoire has been ASP.NET MVC 1.0 which I LOVE!!! I read the ASP.NET MVC 1.0 newly released book from theGu and Hanselman, which is a good book. Practical, straight to the action and with nice working examples, but like most books it felt short when trying to apply the same patters to big enterprise solutions. To help a little, I'll be writing a series of posts of how to use ASP.NET MVC 1.0 in more enterprise level scenarios and how to accommodate the MVC pattern to layered architecture...I think the approach is very cool and interesting and I hope people find it useful.

Anyway, now I'm in New York working a lot so I'll probably start writing and get back on track as soon as I can. I have lot of news, lots of new cool stuff to share.

Keep an eye on the blog, and please, leave a comment or send me an email if you want to share something.
