So Rob Conery wrote a really cool post the other day that I just had to comment on.
Here’s my thought for you: What if you used an OODB for development ONLY and implemented SQL Server later, when you know what you need to create.
It made me wonder; how many applications really, really need a full on RDBMS (Oracle, Sql Server etc.) as backend? I wouldn’t know, but if I were to guess I’d say; not all. Vague, I know… 😉 But I do know this; my next project will use Db4O! I just have to try this stuff out!

Beginning Continuous Improvement, A Case Study – Sergio Pereira:
There had to be a better way. So, I started combing the web, hoping to find people that solved issues like mine. Googling phrases like ?extensibility?, ?webforms pain?, and ?easy asp.net deployment?.
Pretty cool story about one develops road to a better dev process. I submitted my own story, perhaps they’ll publish it in the coming weeks. If not then I’ll publish it my self.
Very interesting read. I like TDD, but I’m also struggling with some aspects of it; ie. am I doing this right?

Pretty cool! Mocking is, once you get the hang of it, incredibly cool.

I love to write code using TDD. Just love it. It makes me think a lot harder on how to structure my code and it takes away a lot of the insecurity I sometimes feel (breaking stuff). This paper (download) supports that. Check out the link for more comments to it.
