OSS Projects

These are the projects that I work on actively:

  • FunnelWeb
    A blog engine for real developers, built using ASP.NET MVC. It powers this site.
  • Magellan
    A lightweight framework for building WPF navigation applications, inspired by ASP.NET MVC.
  • DbUp
    A tool for streamlining SQL database deployments

These projects were fun ideas that I put out to see if they gained traction, but I don't actively work on them anymore:

  • Bindable LINQ
    An extension to LINQ that handles collection changed events and propagates the changes into the resulting collections. It's like a "live" LINQ to Objects.
  • Tape
    A simple dependency management scheme for .NET
  • Pigeon
    A lightweight alternative to WCF designed for high throughput, using Google Protocol Buffers and raw TCP sockets.
  • Observal
    A library for managing observable hierarchies of objects.
  • MicroModels
    A library for building very tiny ViewModels for WPF.
  • StovellMocks
    An excursion into what is involved in building a mocking library. Inspired by RhinoMocks.
  • jQueryPad
    A lightweight tool for prototyping snippets of JavaScript and HTML.
A picture of me

Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work on Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool.

Prior to founding Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I was a Microsoft MVP for WPF from 2006 to 2013.
