Visibility (3/3)

Not the Conservatoire de Musique mentioned in this post; this is actually the Bâtiment des Forces Motrices, my new favorite venue. It sits in the middle of the river. It is gorgeous inside and out. The plush seats are just as great for dozing off as those in the Alhambra theater. I attended [...]

The  International Film Festival and Forum on Human Rights (check up on the FIFDH site if you’ll be in Geneva when it happens next year) meant I saw a bunch of great documentaries, a couple of fantastic concerts, and a handful of talks ranging from so bad half the audience walked out to so great [...]

Converting PowerShell to C# through intent instead of an abstract syntax tree alone

I recently added support to the CodeConverter.net SDK to convert PowerShell to C#. This was a very similar process to converting C# to PowerShell.

These events made me more aware of my ‘bubble’, and how the film of its membrane clouds my vision (kind of like [...]

XUnit, like a lot of other testing frameworks, allows for creating test cases, or theories in XUnit terms, based on test data rather than static tests alone. With the CodeConverter.NET tests, I decided to generate the test cases based on input files and output files. The input files contain C# code and the output files [...]

The last couple of days I’ve been busy working on CodeConverter.NET. Here are some updates. Simplified Site When I first conceived of CodeConverter.NET, I thought of making it a community curated site where not only automated conversions would happen but also users could add conversions or improve automated ones. I realized that this was a [...]

Elephant Nature Park in Chiang Mai, Thailand

Nestled between a lush mountain range about an hour and a half north of Chiang Mai resides a 250-acre sanctuary for elephants and many of their smaller friends at the Elephant Nature Park. Several weeks before heading to Thailand we reserved a spot on a tour to the park. We were surprised to find the [...]

CodeConverter.NET SDK: Now open-source!

I spent a lot of time on planes and in airports the last few weeks so I put together a present. After posting about CodeConverter.NET and the View as PowerShell Chrome Extension, I had some feedback that it would be great if the code for this was open-source. After some clean up, I’ve published the [...]
