When I started working on my new project a month ago, I noted
that it uses great variety of technologies, so I wouldn't be bored to death. Now I know I was right. The first month I did mostly ASP.NET development, which was interesting since my experience with it was very little. In the begining there were a lot of small frustrations here and there, while figuring out why some things misbehave, but those moments are now very rare.
In the last two days I did some totally new things for me. Yesterday it was XSL transformation (VS.NET 2005 helped a lot there) and today it was Ajax. The Ajax thing was powered by AutoSuggestBox
and even though it was not a rocket science it felt refreshing. I was implementing a search-as-you-type functionality. It was of the simplest kind: just find those names who start with the input letters. I wonder if we should make it powerful like Resharper's Ctrl+N
but since the product is not intented for developers, it might be better to stick to a simple way.
