Posts I've Made

  1. In Topic: What are you reading and what is on your book stack to read?

    Posted 29 Nov 2015

    I recently started that one, I'm at about 30%. I normally would burn through it in about two or three sittings, but Fallout 4 happened.
  2. In Topic: [link] What is New in C# 6.0

    Posted 25 Nov 2015

    My favorite benefit of F# is that you can use it like a scripting language and a programming language. I've written a library that queries Dynamics CRM that originally had a fluent interface, now it's designed for currying. I then write .fsx file that references that library and does some work. I don't need to compile the script.

    That's one thing that C# can't quite do. My "workaround" is to use LINQPad. It's such a great tool for "scripting" with C#.
  3. In Topic: i would like to know if you can program microcontrollers with c#?

    Posted 24 Nov 2015

    Well, I'd say Netduino is a good option.

    Wait, you say you're learning C# because you heard you could use it for microcontroller programming? Most people do that the other way around. They already know C#, so they'd like to leverage that in a microcontroller project.

    C# and .NET isn't "primetime" for microcontroller programming. That's not it's primary purpose. If you're going to start from a blank slate anyway, learn C or C++; it will be more broadly useful in the long run.
  4. In Topic: New C# Tutorial Series? "The Right Way to X"

    Posted 23 Nov 2015

    Check out the two I have listed in my signature; I think you'll see what I mean by "The Right Way to ____". It's not "do specifically this every time". It's more of: "when querying databases, ALWAYS USE PREPARED STATEMENTS/PARAMETERS!!!" because not using them is specifically "the wrong way".
  5. In Topic: Adding unique integers to a list

    Posted 22 Nov 2015


    Because I've heard that contains ain't that stable/good for verifying non-string variable types

    You heard wrong. Contains can compare anything that's comparable. The problem is that some objects aren't easily comparable. But it's also possible to override how objects are compared anyway by providing your own IEqualityComparer. Or designing your classes so that they are IEquatable or IComparable.
