Interview with Ayende Rahien (aka Oren Eini)

DevExpress Data Blog
09 March 2011

Woody and I recently got to spend some time in Dallas for the inaugural Dallas Day of .NET. It was a wonderful two days of learning new techniques, mastering our coding skills, and making new friends. It was great to meet everyone and share a bit!

We took a bit of time to catch up with the ever-blogging Ayende Rahien (Oren Eini) to chat a bit about what has been going on.


Here is what we discussed:

  1. Where did the name Ayende come from? (Prison Time)
  2. Sessions he gave in the Dallas Day of .NET
  3. What is Oren working on? (think RaveDB, Silverlight, Replication, Phone 7)
  4. Commit = Production Deployment?!?!?!
  5. Repository Pattern is a series of nonsense wrappers
  6. Why does Oren like Rhinos? (or Penguins?)
  7. How does Oren blog so much?

It was great of him to lend us some of his time during his busy schedule here in the States. Recently he’s also spent some time with us chatting up RavenDB and document based systems:

  1. Chatting about RavenDB with Ayende Rahien
  2. Building Document Based Systems

Enjoy the wisdom!

As always, if there are any comments and/or questions, feel free to get a hold of me!
