Had a great time presenting at Bay.NET http://www.meetup.com/BayNET/events/114504982/
Will post the code over the weekend, since it needs to be scrubbed of Azure account details.
Use Visual Studio and your C#/.NET skills to get your Windows apps into iOS and Android App stores. This was given at Bay.NET meetup http://www.meetup.com/BayNET/events/113093652/
Thanks to Faraz for recording the video.
It’s easy to give a great presentation on a great piece of software
Thanks to the EastBay.NET group for inviting me, Xamarin for the giveaways and the attendees for some really good questions.
Note to self – Do more presentations in 2013.
Here are the presentations for my sessions at SVCC on MonoTouch and ServiceStack. Some good questions from the attendees.
I had setup my Sony Nexus 5 to record these sessions but the camera overheated and stopped working. I will probably give these presentations at another group and will try to make sure to record this.
We have used ServiceStack for our REST web service layer for Mobi App Catalog.
At some point in the future, I will write up how we built App Catalog with ServiceStack, AngularJS, ASP.NET, MonoTouch, MonoDroid, Visual Studio 2012, Windows RT and Bootstrap.
Any questions – Tweet them to @SoftwareWeaver
Thanks to the Internet Archive, I added some old posts to the Notes section.

I read Fenyman’s book in high school and it should be a must read for students and folks like Rick Perry. Feynman explains what science is and what a scientific experiment should be. His example of Cargo cult science is classic.
Wikipedia has a good definition of Cargo cult programming that is based on the same concept.
Next time you interview someone, check if he/she is a cargo cult programmer.
Here are some tips to identify them…
- Starts by writing a class factory instead of a class
- Implements their own framework rather then reusing an existing framework
- The classes and their relations look like spaghetti when drawn on paper
- Not Invented here mindset
- Rewrites other folks code without talking to them
- Applies the latest patterns, processes and methodologies without really understanding them
- Thinks users are stupid
- Writes code before understanding the user’s goals
