Learning in the open – Sample application for Castle stack

We’re getting really close to new release of major Castle Project elements (Monorail 2.0, ActiveRecord 2.1, Windsor 2.1…). Coincidently I started building a small application on top of the stack, and I thought it would be a good idea to make this a “learning in the open” experience, and share my progress on this blog.

This will mostly (at least initially) be a rework of Ayende’s old series, but I will update it to the latest version of the projects and try to discuss some new features as we go along.

I don’t have the application ready yet. This is a journey for me, and as I don’t really have much experience with either Monorail or ActiveRecord, I may do stupid things. That’s the part where your feedback comes into play. I want to drive this series on feedback in much greater degree than the series on Dynamic Proxy. If you want me to dive into details on certain topics – let me know. If you think I should have done something differently and revisit some parts – let me know.

That’s all for now – see you next time.
