Share, Reuse, Relax, Repeat: Bungee Goes Social, Injects Aspect-Oriented Community Code Sharing Repository To Mix
A bit of a Bungee Labs theme as of late, and for good reason: I have about this >< much time at the moment to do not a whole lot more than eat, sleep, code, repeat, and while that doesn’t answer why I’ve bin on a Bungee Binger, as per the title of this post, any way I can find to save both time, money, and the stress of worrying about whether or not I’m going to make any given deadline is something I’m going to be paying attention to. As such, my attention has been directed towards any aspect of my developer toolbag which holds potential of providing a faster, more efficient, and more productive way to get from Join Point A to Point Cut B, and in this regard, I have some advice,
When your concerns are founded upon finding every possible way to weave into any given paragraph the key phrases and terminology used in Aspect Oriented Programming, chances are quite good you should consider taking a *NICE LONG* vacation as far away from the keyboard and computer screen as you can possibly get. And it’s for this very reason I am finding the latest offering from Bungee Labs oh so very appealing to these liquid crystallized eye balls of mine,
In this latest release from Bungee Labs, we’ve introduced a new feature that adds another layer to our support for a community of Bungee Developers working together to build amazing applications. In Bungee we’ve always had the concept of a Production workspace. It’s from that Production workspace where Bungee developers instantly deploy their completed applications to end-users. We’re taking the first steps, with this release, to turn the Production workspace into a repository of not just completed applications, but any Bungee project type; such as TypeLib, WSDL, Style Projects and more. When these projects are put into the Production workspace they essentially become libraries of functionality that can be copied into other Solutions or used as a dependency in other solutions - giving all Bungee developers the ability to share and re-use code. Development by the community, for the community, adds tremendous value for the applications that Bungee developers are creating. We’re very excited for the possibilities that this feature enables now and for the future.
*SWEET*!!! Of course the best way to ensure I can spend less of my time writing code, and more of my time sipping virtual Pina Coladas on a virtual vacation to Maui (actually, if/when time permits that vacation will be spent snowboarding on the slopes of nearby Brighton and Snowbird, as to me, anyway, devouring Utah’s finest Champaign (
Powder) is my equivalent to what sipping Pina Coladas on one of Maui’s beaches would be to most anyone else, so I figure the best way to describe my version of Heaven is to virtually associate it with the more common view point of the masses as to what Heaven is all about…
… And why I decided to tell you all this, I doubt God even knows, so for now I guess it time to go back to my original point which > ) is to — you know — get people excited about building all sorts of cool widgets, gizmo’s, and other forms of reusable code modules such that I can simply point, click, relax, and repeat my way
into code completion w00t! :D
Oh! I almost forgot: I’m not sure if the word/phrase between “Please” and “tell people about this” was “don’t” or “go ahead and” due to the fact that there was *HEAVY* consumption of Krispy Kremes taking place at the time of the conversation, so things were a bit mumbled. And to be honest, when every other word during the conversation is spaced between the ecstasy of “mmmmm… *HOT* Krispy Kremes. mmmmm” it’s hard to really understand much of anything else, so if nothing else, I have an excuse as to why I chose to share this sweet little glazed bread crumb trail of byte-sized info…
The back door to Bungee Connect was accidentally left open. Or in other words, if you visit the Bungee Connect entry page, click the ‘Beta SignUp’ link, enter and confirm your email address, instead of receiving a,
“thanks. don’t call us, we’ll call you. Now kick *rockz* sucka phish!”
… you’re gonna get a
“Welcome. Come on in. Want some *FRESH HOT* Krispy Kremes?”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Say no. They’re just being cordial. Try to snatch one of those KK’s out of the box and between Lyle, Brad, Alex, and Ted, you’re likely to find yourself in a place that — I can assure you — you don’t want to be.
Considered yourself warned. ;-)
Oh, and don’t blame me if when you arrive the door is locked again, cuz’ I’m pretty sure the words were “Please *don’t* tell people about this” but given the fact that KK’s were involved, there ain’t a court room on this planet that’s gunna find me guilty. So have at it, baby! Can’t keep Milly waiting much longer, so get on in there and write me some code I can reuse, k?! ;-)
