Entries in C# (11)



Well I finally have my first fully functional beta release for DotSerialize and I've now posted it on nuget (wooo!).  It's not quite as performant as I'd hoped speed-wise, but it more than delivers in other aspects so I'm still quite happy.  I have now moved onto new projects.


Coding Fever

Lately I've been hit with the urge to code like mad again.  Most of the time work manages to crush any urge to code on my own projects out of me.  By the time I get home I don't even want to think about code (the curse of your main hobby also being your job).  Lately though I've found myself back in the groove and being quite productive.  I published a new library on codeplex called DotSerialize and am working on an article for CodeProject detailing how to customize it to serialize complex data structures.  I'm also working on some commercial enterprises again.  I don't know how long this will last, but I hope I can keep up the steam for another 6 months at least.  Any other programmers out there stay in near perpetual burnout thanks to your job?


Demo Project for CSide Integration Library

I would like to say I will have a demo project posted soon, but I have been busy with other things lately.  Combine that with the fact that I will be visiting family/friends in the near future, and you get more delays.  My goal right now is to have something put together and posted up by June 11th.  As always, if anyone has any specific questions/feedback/suggestions about the library, drop me a line.


CSide project and Dynamics Nav 2013

So it would appear that since the development environment for Dynamics Nav 2013 was barely changed, my integration dll will work for 2013 development as well.  The only thing preventing this was the lack of support for Query objects in the NavObjectType enumeration.  I have since added support for this new object type to the library so it should work for 2013 now.  Sadly, I do not have the ability to test this myself, so I will have to rely on the community to validate this.


Work in Progress

Ok, so I don't have the code examples for the C/Side library done yet.  I do have a basic wiki page up, which I will add to.  I have been updating the source code and over the weekend I made a number of breaking changes to the library.  These were mainly method renamings and minor signature changes.  I think these were all for the better, but you will likely need to make some minor changes to code using the 1.3 and prior libraries.  I will post the 1.4 update this week, along with finished samples, either this week or next weekend (you can always download the latest source from my respository).  If anyone has any questions about the library, I'm always happy to answer questions, as well as discuss usage.
