Resolver and IronPython

emoticon:bugs After over a year of working as a programmer for Resolver Systems I can finally tell you what I've been working on.

We're now 'out of stealth mode' officially, and Resolver is in the hands of a few beta testers.

Resolver is a new spreadsheet program (a desktop application) for companies who push spreadsheets beyond what they were designed to do.

Resolver in action...

I won't bore you with all the techie details, but if you are interested you can read my announcement on the Techie blog. I've also launched a new website, with articles and examples on how to get the best from Resolver: Resolver Hacks.

Resolver is written in a new programming language called IronPython. I'm currently writing a book on IronPython for Manning. As well as this, I'm giving a couple of talks on the subject soon.

A talk on 'Python in Your Browser: IronPython and Silverlight' at PyCon UK in September. The following week I will be giving a similar talk (to a very different audience) at Mix UK, the Microsoft developer conference. Then in November I will be at another Microsoft conference in Barcelona called TechEd. I won't be speaking there but will be on the Microsoft dynamic languages stand. All more than enough to keep me busy. Wink

Visit to Cyprus

emoticon:ir_scope We hadn't been away this year, and with the book progressing slowly it looked like we weren't going to get away this year. Delia started to threaten me with divorce, so I found us a cheap holiday in Cyprus from lastminute.com [1].

We spent a week there and it was great. Cyprus is an ex-British colony. It is very hot but very tourist orientated.

It has some interesting (mainly Roman) history.

Paphos - Tomb of the Kings

We did some fun things.

Paragliding

We met some of the locals.

A local lizard

Including some familiar faces.

Shrek in Cypress

Although quite a barren country there is some beautiful scenery. This is from the Troodos mountains.

Grains!

emoticon:clock I haven't posted for a while, but uhm... I've been busy. By way of compensation, here's a cartoon.

F-Minus Vegetarian Zombies

Well, I thought it was funny. In the next couple of entries I'll tell you some of the things I've been up to.

The Old Blog Archives

There was so much ancient wisdom distilled into my old blog, that I couldn't let it just creep ignominiously into the pages of cyber-history. More to the point I'm still getting some hits from google with the old entries. Here are the archives of my previous Blogger based blog.
