I am happy to announce that I have finally updated my extension for BrightScript.  It previously only supported Visual Studio 2010 but I have finally had enough time to make the modifications and get it working for Visual Studio 2012.

BrightScript Extension

 

You can get it here or through Visual Studio using Tools | Extensions and Updates.  Then all you need to do is simply do a search online for “BrightScript”.

For those of you who develop for the Roku or BrightSign devices, here is what your code will look like now in Visual Studio:

Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection

I am happy to announce that the book, Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection has been published.  I worked on the project as a technical reviewer and had a lot of fun.

Mastering Ninject for Dependency Injection

If you are interest in a great reference for Dependency Injection (DI), this is a good one.  It goes deep for those of you who really want to take full advantage of a mature DI container.

I would like to thank Packt Publishing for reaching out to work on this title.
