Where’s Bart’s Blog Been?

A quick update to my readers on a few little subjects. First of all, some people have noticed my blog welcomed readers with a not-so-sweet 404 error message the last few days. Turned out my monthly bandwidth was exceeded which was enough reason for my hosting provider to take the thing offline.

Since this is quite inconvenient I’ve started some migration of image content to another domain, which is work in progress and should (hopefully) prevent the issue from occurring again. Other measures will be taken to limit the download volumes.

Secondly, many others have noticed it’s been quite silent on my blog lately. As my colleague Wes warned me, once you start enjoying every day of functional programming hacking on Erik’s team, time for blogging steadily decreases. What we call “hacking” has been applied to many projects we’ve been working on over here in the Cloud Programmability Team, some of which are yet undisclosed. The most visible one today is obviously the Reactive Extensions both for .NET and for JavaScript, which I’ve been evangelizing both within and outside the company. Another one which I can only give the name for is dubbed “LINQ to Anything” that’s – as you can imagine – keeping me busy and inspired on a daily and nightly basis. On top of all of this, I’ve got some other writing projects going on that are nearing completion (finally).

Anyway, the big plan is to break the silence and start blogging again about our established technologies, including Rx in all its glory. Subjects will include continuation passing style, duality between IEnumerable<T> and IObservable<T>, parameterization for concurrency, discussion of the plethora of operators available, a good portion of monads for sure, the IQbservable<T> interface (no, I won’t discuss the color of the bikeshed) and one of its applications (LINQ to WMI Events), etc. Stay tuned for a series on those subjects starting in the hopefully very near future.

See you soon!
