Peter Himshoot (a fellow RD) comments on Effective C#

Peter Himshoot, another Regional Director, has written an entry in his blog about Effective C#

He says some very nice things, including "So for anyone interested in improving their C# (and VB.NET too B.T.W.) and write code that is correct and executes faster, I can recommend this book!"

Thank you!

Addison Wesley is posting *more* excerpts of Effective C# now (But you should still buy the book.)

New this week:  Two new items. 

First, Prefer Immutable Atomic Values Types (pdf).

Second, Understand the pitfalls of GetHashCode (pdf).

Third, there is an online HTML page with my discussion of the Standard Dispose Idiom (HTML).

Prefer Immutable Value Types
Why Immutable? Why atomic?
Understand the Pitfalls of GetHashCode()
Why GetHashCode() has numerous issues.
Implement the Standard Dispose Idiom
Why does Dispose work the way it does?

It’s exciting to see this becoming real after all this work.

Each week, one new item will go online here at the main page. This week's item is on differentiating between value types and reference types.

You can view all the items here on the Effective C# page.
