Greek Goddess Gamble: Slowing down the writing

Posted in Personal life

Hi everyone, it’s been exactly a month since my last post and I have a good excuse for it. As it turns out I was pretty busy with a wedding, a holiday and the beginning of a personal project. Yep, another one! From now I will refer to it as my Greek goddess gamble until I reveal what it is all about.

My Musketeers for DotNet Test driven development

Test, four letters, one meaning and for some people a struggle. Getting people around you to write tests is easy only when everyone already agrees with you. As often, there are instances where some people show resistance to writing tests. Here is the stuff I hear the most from them:

D: I don’t have time to write tests.

A: I don’t need to test this.

B: I can’t write a test for this.

C# dynamic interface implementation at runtime

Posted in Development, and Professional life

Some context first

How did I come to write a class allowing dynamic interface implementation in the first place? Ever had to work on a huge company project over the weekend? Because it is the weekend you pick up fixes what should be easy configuration changes. Then you think it will take you only a couple of hours then you will be off to the gym. I thought that yesterday and boy I mislead myself, much mislead indeed. Basically, I had to update a couple of big projects to remove fields that are null from the JSON response. All of that listening to stuff like the Ding Dong Song, Purple Lamborghini and Slipknot’s Psychosocial. On the first project I had to add a little line to have that working, so the second one should be the same right? I actually thought I would grab another task before leaving that improvised hackathon.
