I’ve done some tries with NoSQL databases, using RavenDB and MongoDB, previously and it all seems very good and interesting. However, I haven’t had any projects where I can use it, except for private projects that I don’t have time for. But it is a growing area and today I listened to Hanselminutes episode 386, Understanding CouchDB and NoSQL with Jan Lehnardt.

Jan, the creator of CouchDB, is a brilliant guy and he give a good overview of NoSQL, data modeling and such.
I will probably use a NoSQL database in my “One hour a day” projects.

The second podcast of the day was Herding Code episode 177, Anthony vander Hoorn on Glimpse internals.

Glimpse is an awesome tool I’ve heard. I read Scott Hanselman’s post, If you’re not using Glimpse with ASP.NET for debugging and profiling, you’re missing out but as usual I haven’t gotten started with it yet.
Glimpse is a client side debugger and Anthony give us the history and evolution of Glimpse and the thoughts behind it and future plans. 

30 days! First month with one hour a day posts. Not so much coding yet but I have learned so much and I’m totally stoked going into month two.
