NetFXHarmonics on CodePlex

April 07, 2008

Well, I finally broke down.  My public projects are now freely available for download on CodePlex.  Below is a list of the current projects on CodePlex

Here are the current projects on CodePlex:

As far as creating "releases", these are shared-source/open-source projects and in the model I'm following "releases" are always going to be obsolete.  Therefore, I will provide ZIP versions of the archived major revisions of a project and the current revision will always be available as source code.  The only exception to this may be DevServer, which I may do monthly releases or releases based upon major upgrades.  I'm currently working on new major revisions for a few other projects and when they are completed, I will then post them on to CodePlex as well.

As a reminder, my projects are always architected to follow the current best-practices and idiots for a particular technology and are therefore often fully re-architected based on the current technology.  The reason I do this is for the simple reason that my core specialty is training (technology or not) and that's the driving principle in my projects.  Therefore, on each of my projects there is a "As a Training Tool" section that will explain that projects technology and architecture as well as what else you might be able to learn from it.

As a final note, SVNBridge is working OK for me and has really helped me get over the CodePlex hurdle.  Scott Hanselman was kind enough to encourage me to try SVNBridge again.  I'm honesty glad I did.  The Team System 2008 Team Explorer client which integrated into Visual Studio works every now and again, but I got absolutely sick of everything locking up every time I would save a file.  Not even a check it!  A simple local save!  How people put up with "connected" version control systems is beyond me.  Do people not realize that Subversion does locking too?  Anyways, SVNBridge works great for both check outs and commits (we don't "check in" in the Subversion world-- we use transactional terminology).  If you want Visual Studio 2008 integration AND speed and power and flexibility with CodePlex, get VisualSVN.  It's an add-on for VS2008 that uses Tortoise behind the scenes.  With that, depending on my mood I can commit in both VS2008 (what I would do when working on refactoring or something) and in the Windows shell (what I would do when working with JavaScript files in the world's best JavaScript IDE: Notepad2).
