Coming Up For Air
Finally, I’ve got a chance to catch my breath a little bit before diving back into the other project that I’m working on. That project is more of a marathon than a sprint, though. It’s turning out to be one of the most interesting projects I’ve worked on to date, and I’ve been able to use a bunch of cool technologies on it. Not only has it made development more interesting (who doesn’t love a new toy to play with?) — it’s also made the team vastly more productive.
The project has a whole bunch of moving pieces. Currently, we’re using, in various sections:
- .NET Compact Framework (handheld computers are fun!)
- Data replication
- Web Services
- Windows Services
As you can probably tell by the insane amount of libraries, we’ve done a good job resisting the not-invented-here syndrome so far. Back to the grind!
