What have I done in my spare time, I love coding so I code in my spare time...like a lot of us geeks.
....Well back then
Back when I started working in the 90's I wanted to create a Hurricane Tracking Application, at the time pretty much VB was fast to develop and simple to code, but I wanted more, I wanted it also to be fast to run and develop, a new library came along called MFC, it made C++ simpler to make Windows apps so I started to work.
.....This Is Now
C#, .NET, WPF, WCF, SOA and iPhone, Objective C.
Working on my own time, late nights and weekends the app has evolved over the years, and so have I COMPLETELY rewrote the app, Tracking The Eye, into a full .NET application...but to support it HTML would no longer do, I needed a real time SOA architecture, so I created a set of web services to run the application. well that was not enough iPhone, and Windows Gadgets were coming into focus, so REST support was added.
Silverlight, LINQ, WPF, WCF, iPhone, Android...the world is changing FAST...what was new is old....just knowing OO and threading is not enough anymore.
Well good news this all goes toward re-usability...
Here's an example of the Silverlight portion of the app, it is embedded into a Windows form application and uses the Silverlight Bing Map Control and a pop UserControl that shows a realtime radar map over the location you hover over.
This iPhone app supports Multi Touch, Geo Locations fully interactive map and Google map SDK. It can give your distance to the storm from your location. It communicates via the same SOA web services the Windows and Windows Gadget and Silverlight apps do.
