Messing Around with OBA and TwitLook is Spawned

4/22/2009 5:39:34 PM

Twitlook-small Had a spare few minutes so I started messing around with OBA a bit and thought, “Hey, I spend a ton of time in Outlook... be kinda cool to see Twitter updates in there as well.”  So I spent about an hour and change and came up with version 0.1 of TwitLook.  No update, no ability to post... pretty much nothing but showing updates from my Friends.  I’ll bang away as I get time and if anyone is interested (leave a comment), I will eventually post the code and the add-in exe.

I know... the world really needs another Twitter client.  I don’t use Twitter clients, relying instead on the browser since I am in in frequent Tweeter and really only check it once in a while to see what others are talking about.  But it would be handy to have Tweets right in the place I spend most of my time.  So there ya go...

Building a Composite WPF Application Part 6: Working with Models

4/7/2009 11:36:00 AM

In this installment of the Building a Composite WPF App (Prism) series, I take a look at building models. I show why we may build View specific models and how they will be exposed by the Presenters in the Northwind Business Center application.  I say this in the screencast, but it is very possible to combine the presenter and the model into a single ViewModel, but I have kept them separate for illustration purposes.
