The Big Event is just a week away

time to read 1 min | 175 words

I am getting married on the 29th May, which is just a week away. You may notice a decline in the number of posts to this blog (and general activity for work related stuff) around that time frame.

For quite some time, I had to… endure certain types of jokes about what would happen when I would get married. Given the choice between my own happiness and the desires of some members of the development community to see me in a dark room eating pizza and working at all hours, I know what I would take… Smile

Never the less, as a consolation prize to those people, and as a way to spread my happiness, the following coupon code with give you 29% discount for all the profilers (NH Prof, EF Prof, L2S Prof, LLBLGen Prof, Hibernate Prof): WDG-45K2D467C5

The coupon works for single license purchases, and it is only valid until the 1st of June.


Uri Goldstein

Congratulations! Wishing you and your future wife success and happiness in your marriage at least as much as your romance with programming and .net have enjoyed so far :)


im sure i can speak for the whole internet when i say Mazel Tov and congrads!

Anand Powar

Congrats Ayende, have a happy married life :)


Whoa! Ayende, this entry will be probably the most cited blog entry in the forthcoming week :) Happy to read it. Congratulations and don't forget about your children, I meant projects :P


Just celebrated my 11th anniversary. Congrats. I wish you and your wife many, many happy years together. As always thanks for all your insights.

Simone Chiaretta

Congrats man!!! Wish you two an happy life! Is there something behind the 29% discount? I mean, behind the number itself: why not 30 or 25?

Omer van Kloeten

Congratulations, Oren :) Mazal Tov and all the best in your upcoming married life!

Jef Claes


@Stefano: He should have married the 31st Juli then ;)


It could be related to the date of the deed..

Also, Congratulations!

Alex Vilela


Being married is really wonderful. There's little room for refactorings though!

David White

This could be the proof we've been awaiting, Oren -- that you're actually human and have a life! Have fun spawning processes. ;-)

Rory Becker

Indeed I also wish you and your future wife the very best for the future.

Marcus Hammarberg

Congratulations and God bless you both!

Is she a developer?

Ah, what would a geek wedding be without a stream of jokes about spawning, forking, and joining.

Seriously, have a great wedding and enjoy some time with your new partner. We'll give you a break from blogging until the 3rd of June, after which we'll expect some fresh new content. :)

Scott W White

Congratulations and best wishes starting your family. May you always get your way :-)

Many many congratulations, and hope many good years ahead.

Congrats! I wish you all the best. I wonder if the wedding cake will have a Rhino worked in?

Rob Kent

Congratulations. Hope everything compiles successfully for you both :)

var half = new [] { "oren" };
var otherHalf = new[] { "another" };
var happyCouple = half.Where(s => half.GetType().IsAssignableFrom(otherHalf.GetType())) .Union(otherHalf, StringComparer.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase) .Select(s => new { Couple=string.Format("{0}+{1}", half.Single(), otherHalf.Single())}) .First() .Couple;

Congrats Oren! wish u a fruitful one!


Many congratulations. Hope you have a wonderful married life


All the best!



"desires of some members of the development community to see me in a dark room eating pizza and working at all hours"

You make it sound like there's something wrong with that.

Steve Wagner

Congrats Oren, then you married right one week after me :-)


Mazel tov, Oren! May she bring you much happiness! And don't even think of blogging on your honeymoon. :-)
