MySQL Certification Study: Write a basic .NET application that uses MySQL

I've registered for the MySQL 5.6 beta exams, just like many more on Planet MySQL have done.

One of the topics for the MySQL 5.6 Developer exam is: "Write a basic .NET application that uses MySQL".

I have used Connector/Net a few times the last few years, but the last time I looked at some code involving Connector/Net was when I took the MySQL 5 Developer exam, which was long ago.

I'm using Linux on both my laptop and on servers for most projects. So I don't use or see many .NET code.

So I need a short refresh.

To use Connector/Net on Linux you will need to install Mono. The base for .NET is CIL, which exists in at least 4 versions: 1.0, 2.0 and 4.0. To compile C# code with mono you need the command which correspondends with the CIL version you are using.

  • CIL 1.0: mcs
  • CIL 2.0: gmcs
  • CIL 4.0: dmcs

For Ubuntu …

Linus on Instantiation and Armadaification

I feel a sense of pride when I think that I was involved in the development and maintenance of what was probably the first piece of software accepted into Debian which then had and still has direct up-stream support from Microsoft. The world is a better place for having Microsoft in it. The first operating system I ever ran on an 08086-based CPU was MS-DOS 2.x. I remember how thrilled I was when we got to see how my friend’s 80286 system ran BBS software that would cause a modem to dial a local system and display the application as if it were running on a local machine. Totally sweet.

When we were living at 6162 NE Middle in the nine-eight 292, we got an 80386 which ran Doom. Yeah, the original one, not the fancy new one with the double barrel shotgun, but it would probably run that one, too. It was also …

Hey all. Please comment on this entry. I’m trying to get an idea of who’s listening to what I say.

Why do you read this blog? Are you interested in community wireless networks? OpenGL development on Linux? Family? Business Intelligence? Synchronizaton Manager news? Freecycle™ development? Random Perl bits? Something else I’ve forgotten about?

I’m finding myself over-extended and I need to cut back on some of the things I focus on. Please let me know what is important to you so I know how best to re-organize my time, energy and other resources.

Trip to Microsoft on 2006/05/02

I went to Microsoft with Arjen the other day. We talked with Eric Lippert about some new features of C# 3.0 and how MySQL might integrate itself more deeply into the Microsoft Development Environment.

More details if anyone makes noise about being interested.

Miguel wants me to be MySQL's ambassador to Mono

This was an honor, but I must decline. We already have such an "ambassador." Thank you, Miguel.

14:15 <@miguel2> What is MaxDB?
14:15 <@tjfontaine>
14:16 < cj> miguel2: it was written in pascal in the mid 70s.  it's a
            pre-relational database with all sorts of features [added] on
14:16 <@miguel2> Wait, is that a different DB?
14:16 < cj> miguel2: yep
14:16 <@miguel2> So its not MySQL?
14:16 < cj> miguel2: nope
14:16 <@miguel2> That is crazy talk
14:16 <@miguel2> crazy
14:17 <@miguel2> I dontbelieve you
14:17 < cj> miguel2: heh, okay.  MySQL doesn't have *any* pascal code
in the
            kernel, afaik
14:19 <@miguel2> Who uses that?
14:19 <@miguel2> So why dont they pay you to hack on Mono?
14:19 < cj> miguel2: that's something I'd like to know :)

Reggie Burnett, Connector/NET

Zach Urlocker (zachu_rss) mentioned a few blogs recently in an internal memo. I was listed. Whee :) So was Reggie Burnett, who is responsible for Connector/Net. I've been playing with C# recently, and I'd like to get familiar with Connector/Net (or C/Net). So I subscribed to his blog. I've added an rss feed to LiveJournal: reggie_mysql.

Reggie, I'll be reading up on it :)
