As it turnes out there already was another NuPack project, so Microsoft had an online vote and now it has been decided the new name will be NuGet and that it is pronounced "New Get".
Also Scott Hanselman did a talk at PDC named ASP.NET + Packaging + Open Source = Crazy Delicious mostly about NuPack/NuGet and a bunch of other MVC stuff like Razor. I highly recommend it with Scott being entertaining as allways...

A little while ago I blogged about NuPack which is a package management system that Microsoft have released in a CTP1. The cool thing about NuPack is that solves the open source dependency hell, is really easy to use, and it comes as a Visual Studio Extension. After installing the extension you can install packages through a "add reference" like dialog, or through the Package Manager Console.

I have spent this weekend at a codecamp around the Windows Phone 7 developer tools which was hosted by Trifork here in Århus. We looked at developing apps with Silverlight saturday and at XNA today sunday. It has been a lot of fun, and gave a lot of insights into what we can do with the tools.
Good news on deployment
Since I blogged about my initial thoughts on Windows Phone 7 I have heard a couple of good news around app deployment. First of all I was a little skeptical about the 99 dollar fee, when it is not possible to charge anything for the apps. The good news here is that the 99 dollar fee is refunded when you have deployed two apps to the market. So as someone put it at the codecamp “two fart-apps and you have your money back”. Besides that I heard that you can deploy up to 10 apps directly to the phone when you have the licence – so thats all good.

Apparently I was not the only one who fell in love with the NU project, that I blogged a while ago. Microsoft just launched their own NuPack project which provides the same basic features, as well as integration directly with Visual Studio. As a cool sidenote it will be included in the install if you install the latest MVC 3 beta. To get started or just to see a quick runthrough of how it works take a look at Scott Hanselmans post on the subject.
