This article is the second part of how to overcome some of the limitations that come with the Azure TableService Api. In Part1 I take a look at the path taken to solve a specific business case, while in this part I put my magnifying glass over the source code of my DynamicObjectFactory library so we can have some fun with reflection and IL :)

A dynamic type factory for Azure Table Storage - Part 1/4

This post will be the first of many where I detail some of the peculiarities/workarounds encountered in working with Azure to generate a system of fair complexity (see the architecture here). In this instance I will breach the topic of surpassing the limitations the Azure TableService Api imposes on us. (if you are not familiar with these then 1: find out more here, 2: this article might prove challenging to follow, but try anyway, you'll love it ^^ )

Visiting TechEd AU 2011

I reckon a visit to TechEd is a good way to start putting down some of my musings onto the web. Many times have I considered blogging, never have I seen it through, so be forewarned, daily posts will probably not become part of my resume :)
