Microblogging Dump from Developer Academy II

November 27, 2007

I’m having a good time in Microsoft Israel’ Developer Academy II. Currently listening to Ohad Israeli starting to go over my head with concepts like "aspects" and products like PostSharp in his "Mastering Infrastructure Development" lecture. Fascinating stuff.
