Remi Sabourin's Blog Architecture, Management and everything else
I posted last year regarding a dependency management tool I was contemplating. Well, I can happily announce that I did create and launch the tool as I had envisioned it. (I just actually completed a lunch and learn today where I unveiled it to a few more people within the company) In essence, it works by spidering the BUILD environment nightly and records ......

I have been recently dealing with a somewhat tangled set of components where over time, developers have added references as needed to get things done quickly, creating circular and upstream references, resulting in low level layers depending on high level layers. While looking for a nice little refresher online on dependency injection (incidentally, ......

The Challenge Imagine a development shop that maintains 100 .Net solutions, each composed of multiple projects. Imagine roughly half of these being shared domain services or shared common libraries, the other half being end web applications servicing multiple large clients.

I’ve been somewhat absent in the Microsoft events and hooplah in the past. These meetings and events used ......

OK, so my first non-intro post will not be on technology - I will post something relevant to this site but first I need to get this out of my system :) If you know me, you know I have an addictive personality. One of my latest addictions is this TV show Battlestar Galactica. I was given the first 3 seasons and got hooked after the first episode. Since ......

Yes, that's right; I have a blog now! Reminiscent of a few years ago when people looked at me weird when I told them I didn't have a cellphone (of course now I'm hooked to the crackberry), I have 'conformed'. The fact that I waited this long may give you a glimpse into my personality (you thought independent thinker right?). I've considered it before ......
