An IoC that follows you around

March 31, 2010

I want to briefly mention this fantastic IoC container. It is small & easy to use. Best of all it is suited to the world of mobility – small footprint and quick setup.

I intent to use this container in my iPhone apps with MonoTouch, but have already used it at work on the Windows Mobile platform. It really came to the rescue while refactoring the DA layer of our application allowing us to point to multiple mobile databases without any fuss. Just needs a little configuration file for setup purposes.

WCF Data Services

March 24, 2010

Creating an iPhone app at the moment with MonoTouch. Sorry can’t give away any details, but using WCF Data Services (AKA ADO.NET Data Services) to populate my UITableViewControllers. Very cool and light. Thank god the mono team included System.Json.dll in their roadmap, as it makes it a breeze to extract the incoming data.
