C# zip unzip

If you feel the need to zip and or unzip from your C# application here is a simple library that does the trick.  You can download the sharpDevelop zip library from here.  The create zip takes a recursive parameter as seen below.

using ICSharpCode.SharpZipLib.Zip;

// unzipper
FastZip Unzipper = new FastZip();
Unzipper.CreateZip( @“c:\tmp\myzip.zip”, @“c:\tmp\yz”, true, “”);
Unzipper.ExtractZip( @“c:\tmp\myzip.zip”, @“c:\tmp\unzip”, “”);

Boulder tech meetup, Jan 6

The last tech meetup was good as usual.  The theme was pretty much the Boulder tech scene.  Andrew was there Boulder.me Ignite style.  Then Paul Ohm from CU law presented.  And Gnip and Lijit, that needs no introduction a good small meet, maybe to close to the new year ?

What stood out was the increase in numbers of people looking for a job and at the same time decrease in companies looking for people.  The economy has caught up with tech.
