A site I’ve been developing for my wife’s uncle’s business just went live: tateinsurancegroup.com.
Pretty standard site so far. The one cool thing is it was done using Umbraco, an open-source ASP.Net CMS system. There were a few hiccups I encountered when first getting the site setup, but it’s proven to be a very capable CMS solution. I would absolutely consider it in the future.
Found a fantastic logging framework for .Net:
It’s very lightweight, has a ton of loggers already defined, and is easily extensibile. The feature that drew me to it was the ability to log to multiple places at once and to filter what type of entry gets logged to each location. For instance, I wanted to log everything to a text file but only log exceptions to the Windows Event Log. With this framework, it was no problem.
After 3 and half years as a consultant, I’ve accepted an offer to work for Barefoot, a local advertising agency. I will be the sole .Net developer in the interactive design department, so wish me luck. The other guys there seem to like Ruby on Rails, but that’s not my problem.
I’ll see if I can show them the merits of .Net and bring them over to the dark side.
