Carmel Eve's Blog

For those who don’t know, I am currently in the process of carrying out a full code review and improvement of some of our internal code using NDepend. To find out more about the quality measures that NDepend uses to analyse the code – read my first blog in this series! Otherwise, let’s press on! […]


Over the years we’ve built a lot of IP up here at endjin. With a growing codebase, and with my training shifting to look at software architecture, I thought I’d attempt a code review to see what insight I could gain! So… Here goes nothing! The tool I chose to carry out this review is […]


My take on the cornerstones of good project estimation and planning. Firstly, a huge thank you to Mike Cohn for his book on Agile estimation and Planning, which I wholeheartedly recommend if you want to know more about these techniques. And also, to Steve McConnell for going into the real details of software estimation in […]


11 cheers for binary (And 3 for hexadecimal)!

by Carmel Eve

So, I finally reached a point in my software development education where I could no longer avoid it. I needed to actually learn what binary was… Now a lot of you are probably sat here wondering how on earth I managed to get to this point without knowing, and to be honest, I have no […]


And here we are, the culmination of a 3-month long journey deep into the realms of Rx operators. If any of you have been here since the beginning, I hope you have enjoyed going on this ride with me, and if any of you are just starting now, here’s my weekly shameless plug for the […]


We’ve had ongoing issues when deploying web and functions apps involving the locking of DLLs during the deployment. The specific case I’m going to talk about focuses on Azure Functions, but you can also run Web Apps from a package (though the Azure Pipelines tooling currently only works for functions, so you would need to […]


So, this week we are looking at the Buffer and Window Rx operators. (If you have no idea what I’m on about, I suggest you start at the beginning!) There are a few different implementations of these operators, and we are going to focus on the time-based versions. In order to do this, we need […]


After a brief foray into Azure AD, we’re back onto Rx! (If you missed part 1 and 2 then might be worth having a quick read – going to gloss over some of the stuff common to both) OnNext(The GroupBy operator) This week we’re looking at the GroupBy operator. This one’s a bit more involved, […]


So, another year, another random blog topic change! This time we’ve left the world of Rx, and done a hop, skip and leap into Azure! Specifically, Azure AD, permissions and all things service principal. As part of a recent project we needed an Azure Functions App to have access to various Azure resources, including CosmosDB […]


There’s been a little bit of a gap since my last Rx blog, I’ve been pretty busy with keeping up with Advent of Code in any spare time (and I’m sure there will be a blog along those lines at some point in the near future). But, for now, it’s time for a deep dive […]
