I’ve been busy the past few months with my current contract. In the day, I spend my time writing bug-fixes and working with other developers on their projects. So I take my development time at home very seriously.
Here are a few things I’m working on at the moment:
1. Nike+ — I’m writing a C# library which interfaces with the Nike+ API to deliver an object model based on the run details captured by my IPod Nano and Nike+ shoe gadget. This work is nearly complete. I’m waiting to hear from Sourceforge on my application for a project space on this one. I’ll post the code here if it doesn’t make the Sourceforge cut.
2. Google Data API — I’ve been playing with the Google Calendar API. There seems to be a few tools out there to sync Outlook calendars with Google Calendar, but I’ve had problems with all of them. I am trying to look at building a VSTO plug-in that interfaces with Google Calendar on an event basis (you create a new item in Outlook and it automatically uploads to Google without a specific “Sync My Calendars” button).
3. Linq — I’s got sta learn me some Linq.
I generally have maybe two hours a day to do this stuff while in contract. That situation may change soon, but for now, this is all I have time to look at.
