What I Learned Yesterday 8

  • In my past use of generics I largely used them to strongly type the parameters of a list class, or a utilitiy class.  Basically one generic type per class.  But I recently ran into a situation where I needed to use multiple generic types in one class.  I have to admit I think the coolest thing that was in the 2.0 verson of C# was the support for generics.  I love it.  here is a link to a hard core use of generics which helped me figure out how to use generics to solve my problem. http://www.itu.dk/~sestoft/gcsharp/index.html
  • Don’t short change yourself when it comes to load testing your application.  There are so many things that you cannot simulate within your app in basic unit testing and functional testing.  Certain things only appear when an app is pushed.  I really wish you people out there who think you are “Business People” would shut up and listen to the developers.  You are paying us for our experience, why don’t you listen to it for a change!  Oh, but listening is a business decision, not something we want to leave up to the developers!
