Getting started with Powershell

Posted by – September 4, 2010

Powershell is an awesome scripting language for Windows machines, last Sunday I wrote a small script to gather computer monitor info stored on windows registry, this is one of the possibilities behind the power of powershell, you can do much more than it.

Here’s a sample script:

param (
    [Parameter(Mandatory = $TRUE, ParameterSetName="Name", HelpMessage="Your name")]

write-output "Hello $Name"



No way to deploy Rails applications on Apache running under Windows

Posted by – January 20, 2009

After few days trying to run a rails application under apache with “help” of fastcgi module and without any success I’m finally giving up this idea, the reason is simple, I just can’t compile a c code used by fastcgi binding for ruby because of some missing header files and compiler support.

I tried to get the same application running on apache without fastcgi module but it is too sloooow.

The truth is, you can develop rails applications on windows, but please, don’t try to run this applications on apache with fastcgi support, you will waste you time.

To be honest, I don’t have the same problem when running Rails applications on top of JRuby since I can deploy these applications on any servlet container like Tomcat or Jetty.


Back with Windows Mobile development

Posted by – May 19, 2008

Today I’m working with four mobile platforms:

At work:

  • Symbian

At home:

  • J2ME
  • Qtopia
  • Windows Mobile

After some years without touch in Visual Studio .NET and a little far away from Windows Mobile development, I’m finally back, now working on a small project for use in restaurants using a wi-fi connection.

I’ll post some of my challenges in this project when possible.
