If you're a C# developer making your first foray into the land of iPhone and Objective-C programming, you probably have a question or two. I recently started working in earnest on an iPhone app, so I figured I would write down some of the tips I've picked up thus far. Here they are in no particular order. … Continue reading iPhone Objective-C for the C# Developer
I just released the latest version, 1.3.20, tonight. A few new things include: recipe rating; cooking times; preparation times; better search capability; ingredient preparations; bug fixes; and more bug fixes. If you're a user, go upgrade!

Just a few Chef notes... A couple weeks ago I reported that I had gotten rid of SWREG in favor of E-Junkie with PayPal and Google Checkout. Since then I've processed a couple of orders successfully so it's good to know I didn't break anything. That's always a concern of mine when I make changes … Continue reading Some Chef Updates
I would love some input on this from you fellow developers out there, as this is something I continue to try and improve on... WARNING, CODE BELOW THE BREAK! (Note, I just realized the inline images here are overlapping like hell. Sorry, I've changed them to also be links you can click to view completely) … Continue reading Unit Testing
Earlier this week I received a free copy of Microsoft's Visual Studio 2008 by being an Action Pack subscriber and completing a short little web tutorial and quiz.

The best new feature is Recipe Scaling, check it out. Also along with this release is a modified installation procedure. … Continue reading Chef 1.2 Available for Download
In the same vain as another post, I or someone needs to write a Visual Studio 2005 add-in for managing the Break on Exception feature. Specifically, be able to create profiles that can easily be switched between during debugging sessions that would enable/disable breaking into the deubber on certain types of exceptions but not other. … Continue reading Note to self: Another Software Idea
As I mentioned last night, I made the 1.0.0 build of Chef and started doing some installation testing on Vista. It's official - Vista's UAC is kicking my ass. It's during the database setup that I'm having the problem. Sql Server gets installed OK, it's for some reason the database restore that times out. Kinda … Continue reading Chef and Vista
