Up until now I have used the Hightlight Source Pro plugin to display source code on this blog. This plugin is OK and works well but I wanted better layout and readability for my code so I have now changed to the SyntaxHighlighter Evolved plugin.

I hope this will make the reading code snippets experience on my blog even better.

        void InitializeView(TViewData viewData);
        void LoginValidated(bool loginSuccessful);
    }
}

When I started this blog I didn’t put much thought in the categories I created. Therefore I decided to organize my posts into new categories today. I also use this blog as a personal “wiki” so it was about time to make it easier to find old posts.

I have now created the following categories:

A few days ago I got an e-mail from one of the editors at DZone inviting me to become a DZone Most Valuable Blogger (MVB). First I didn’t really know what this was but when I found that highly skilled persons like Mike Cohn, Ted Neward and Jurgen Appelo are DZone MVBs I was convinced that this was a great opportunity. I humbly accepted the invitation and I am now official a DZone MVB.

So what is a DZone MVB?

Quoted from DZone:

DZone’s Most Valuable Blogger program brings together a group of highly talented bloggers, authors, and technologists actively writing about topics of interest to the developer community. These people are recognized in the industry for their contributions and deep technical knowledge on subjects ranging from software design and architecture to programming on a range of platforms including Java, .NET, Ruby and others.

We have entered 2010 and I am now actually enjoying (a lot of people are complaining) the cold and nice winter weather in Oslo (20 degrees Celsius below freezing). I have had a hectic start on this year preparing the start up of a large national project. This is very exciting and I find this a promising start on 2010.

2009 was the year that I started this blog. It has been interesting writing the posts and communicating with my readers. I have also learned a lot in 2009 and I will for sure continue writing posts on topics I find interesting.

To summarize 2009 I will list my top ten posts in 2009. This list is created based on visitors stats and my own rating of the posts (there are always some posts that you are more proud of and have spent more time writing than others).

Today I did some cleaning on my laptop; removing old unused programs and updating/installing new programs. When I installed the newest Windows Live package I got the Windows Live Writer and thought that I would give it a try.

It was very easy to get started, just run the program, type the url to your blog and provide your username and password. I needed to do one change in my blog settings and that was to enable XML-RPC for remote publishing. You find this option under Tools –> Writing

It is very easy to insert several different medias when using Windows Live Writer (link, image, album, table, codes, map, video).

I also like the feeling to write in a program and not directly from my browser. I will play around using this program for my next posts and then the time will show if this is my new preferred publishing tool.

C#.Net example
namespace MVP
{
    public interface ILoginView
    {
        void InitializeView(TViewData viewData);
        void LoginValidated(bool loginSuccessful);
    }
}

I have now added support for code highlighting. To achieve this I installed the Highlight Source Pro plugin, it is based on GeSHi and supports several programming languages.

To make it easy for you to find my posts with code examples I have added the category Code examples. I hope this will make it more enjoyable for you to read my code examples and also easier to find them.

htc touch pro webAfter installing PercentMobile on my blog I found that I have quite a few readers visiting my blog using Windows Mobile devices. I know that reading a blog on the mobile device built-in browser can be awkward so I decided to take some actions improving the look & feel for Windows Mobile devices.

This was done by installing MobilePress a plugin for WordPress that redirects mobile devices to a better looking page/layout. I only enabled this for Windows Mobile devices. iPhone users will get the iPhone look & feel provided by WPtouch and visitors using Opera Mini will get the look & feel from Opera Mini.

iphonesimulatorI have added a plugin called WPtouch on this blog. Reading this blog from iPhone or iPod touch will now give you an iPone application-like look and feel. This should also work for Android phones (have been tested on the T-mobile G1). I hope you enjoy:)
