Full Throttle at TekPub

time to read 1 min | 128 words

Rob Conery pinged me a few weeks back, wanting to do another TekPub episode. So I show up, very early in the morning, and he starts throwing curve balls at me:

The website is down and we aren’t accepting orders, DO SOMETHING ABOUT THIS NOW!

And that was in the first minute or so!

Wait a minute! I thought we were doing a show about…

Oh, this is the Full Throttle episode…

Basically, Rob is just piling requirements and I am trying to play catch up. It is just over an hour, but I think it should be interesting to watch.  I really liked Rob’s post about the show. But you can also skip this and go directly to the actual show.



If the recording has a level similar to the latest presentation of RavenDB, in terms of density, it's totally worth of the price.


I was disappointed :( I didn't see anything special, just usual code.

I read about your attitude to testing and hoped to see any tests here. But unfortunately there wasn't any.

@Alexander, Keep in mind that this was a triage situation. A basic "get it up and running, I don't care how" scenario. Once that is done, you can take the time to go back and write a tested solution.

@Ayende, Great video and well worth the money. I have to say I'm amazed at the speed with which you use Resharper. I actually had to rewind and watch very carefully when you fixed the MVC controller to return JSON on a GET request. I would have missed it entirely if it hadn't been for Rob's screen captions indicating that you had to do something to get it to work.

Thanks Ayende, well worth the $12.
