At my $DAYJOB I frequently find myself talking at length about the intricate technical details of some arbitrary piece of technology that happened to come up in a project. I've even been drafted to do presentations for the dev team, and write long posts to our internal development wiki (ok.. it's a Sharepoint site but SHHH.) Invariably, someone will end up asking my why I don't have my own blog.
Which of course, I do, as you can see from the three posts I made in 2009. (I was kinda excited when I saw a dozen page views on that post in the past two months; then I realized they were all me or my wife.)
So, since I find myself writing these long, informative posts anyway, I may as well put them up here for future reference. And to kick it off, I'm going to do a series of posts on a pretty obscure but useful feature of the .NET Framework: COM Interop. We're struggling with this in more than one project at the moment, so I've had a chance to become pretty familiar with it. I hope.
First post in the series, explaining the basics of COM Interop, due soon. Unless I forget.
