Ambrose Little, Software Guy

People Say That I’m…

  • A thoughtful, fun-loving but immensely driven guy who really cares about the people who work with and for him as well as making awesome things with them.
  • Something of a perfectionist, but reasonably so.
  • A strong writer, and also that I am pretty good at naming things.
  • A peacemaker — tries to listen to all sides and to be fair and help others to see each other’s perspectives.

When I Grow Up…

Other Writings

Books

  • Professional ADO.NET 2: Programming with SQL Server 2005, Oracle, and MySQL — Wrote a few chapters for it, the most interesting being the custom ADO.NET Data Provider, which was an ADO.NET to LDAP/Active Directory mapping layer that allowed for SQL- like queries to be issued rather than the obtuse LDAP syntax.
  • ASP.NET 2.0 MVP Hacks and Tips — Part of a horde of ASP.NET MVPs contributing. I authored the Cache Hacks chapter that showed how to create an object- oriented cache for ASP.NET as well as a cache viewer (similar to ELMAH).
  • Silverlight 1.0 — I was involved from very early with Silverlight, and wrote this together with my co-workers at Infragistics. I wrote the chapter on coding with JavaScript and XAML as well as using Silverlight with ASP.NET.
  • Silverlight 3 Programmer’s Reference — This started as a Silverlight 2 book, but they outpaced us shipping, so it became 3. I wrote the chapters on Silverlight architectural tour, styling and dealing with resources, using services (including HTTP-based and sockets), cross-cutting concerns, and “making the app come alive” — about events, responding to user input, personalization, and internationalization.
