Subjects I would like to blog...

In this post, I will keep a list of some subjects on which I would like to blog (in italic drafted ones):
  • General purpose
    - Alt.Net Meeting Feedback : Object Oriented : an historical mistake or to be continued
    - Software vendors: opened on communities Vs proprietarism
    - Software quality: technical VS process ?
    - Agile and Team organization
    Classify items : hierarchical Vs relational (ex mails, docs...)
  • Technical
    - Object graph consistency, querying and (lazy) loading
    - Object Application Cache
    - SOA and legacy applications concrete integration by example: objectives, solutions, advantages/disavantages (how to integrate read/write operations)
    - Application architecture: taking best pratices together
    - Web State Management : client and server side (sessions, cache...)
  • Process & Tools
    - Test Strategy : automation of Unit + Functional Tests (both coded, not recorded)
    - Functional Test with Fitnesse and configuration management processes
    - TFS Agile Process Template
    - TFS customization
I will try to write on these subjects "shortly"...;)

Blog content

I would to open a blog for long time, but I think I have more to learn from others reading their blogs until now. Today, I am always learning a lot from others in the community, but I would like to give my 2 cents on some subjects :
  • Microsoft technologies and others (because I think there is a lot to learn from other technologies)
  • Software architecture, including every levels : business, functional, applicative, technical
  • "Software world" industrialisation, around tooling and quality
My inspiration will come from :
  • "Software world" actualities
  • Reflexion about my job and the working environment
  • Community activities (forums, informal meetings, blogs...)
I would like to warn you that I could scratch english sometimes (since it is not my mother tongue, which is the french), please be indulgent but let me know when it is unsupportable ;), I would like to improve my english also.

I often say things bluntly, it is volunteer, in order to emphasize the message I want to share, and then must not be interpreted as opinionated behavior. I have some conviction I like to talk about, but I would like to change them if I am truly convinced by any other points of view.

Now, it is time to read some not hesitate to share your thoughts, but stay correct.
