A while back I wrote a review on persistence ignorance presented by James Kovacs and I thought I would give a quick update of what has happened since then.
Last week we held a Sunwapta Professional Development Day for our developers. The morning covered the theory and the afternoon we broke into two teams and built two aspects of a simple application to reinforce the learning.
Recently we implemented the technology in a real project, a .NET desktop application also using WPF.
Mission (learning and implementing NHibernate in a real project) accomplished and hats off to the team (on taking this first step).
Development best practices are always evolving and it takes effort and dedication to keep learning. But that is what being a professional is all about.
