Reviewing Architecting Applications for the Enterprise

Microsoft® .NET: Architecting Applications for the Enterprise by Dino Esposito
My rating: 4 of 5

Interesting and easy-reading book on software architecture using Microsoft technologies. It also provides some helpful best practices in general regardless of the technology. It covers a wide range of many architecture aspects; from presentation patterns to business and data access layers. However, I felt that the book doesn't have a main steam. It gives you tips on every thing but there is nothing that it talks a lot about. All in all, the book is very beneficial and is a must to read for any senior microsoft software developer.

My First Chrome Theme

Snapshot of the theme in Chrome Web Store

Today, I've published a Google Chrome theme. Creating a theme wasn't difficult at all. I used a website that provides the capability of creating Chrome themes online. You can check the website here: Create Chrome Theme Online

My first Chrome theme features a photo that I took in the Jordanian city of Umm Qais. The city resides in the north-west of the country and I think it's not getting  enough attention by tourists and tourism associations.

You can download the theme from this link:

Please try it and tell me what you think.
