Reading application’s logs is not a big fun but let’s be honest – it is part of our job and we will not avoid it. So why don’t we make it slightly more pleasant? Stack traces explorers to the rescue! In fact, I didn’t know about the existence of stack trace explorers till the day I copied a part of app’s log to my clipboard with the plan to send it to the colleague. But when I opened Visual Studio a magic happened, fairytales flew on my desk and opened a new tab in my IDE.

Well, maybe not a totally ‘no’ NullReferenceException, but a whole lot less than now. Well, yeah, I had to catch your attention somehow :P. But anyway, have you heard those rumors about C# 8, how amazing it is going to be and how hard Microsoft is working on the release…? If not, you definitely should read this post! Because the promised changes sound really good and will be a must-to-know quite soon. So today I wanted to write about one of the “louder” planned features – nullable reference ty...

I’ve always had the impression that companies like Microsoft or Google are some magical places in the far-far-away-land (yep, America seems quite far away for a European kiddo 😉 ). People working there must be some kind of amazing scientists who write their code by setting the appropriate voltage directly on transistors. Or, at least, use assembler-like languages every day 😉. If you have a similar idea, you may like to read some facts I discovered after talking to one of Microsoft employees...

Have you ever wondered why blue screens of death happen so rarely, nowadays? Of course, we can thank Microsoft for this but the way they fixed this problem is not so obvious! According to Marino Posadas (and his book Mastering C# and .Net Framework) back in 2010, Microsoft made an analysis of this topic and they came to the conclusion that the 90% (wow!) of the blue screens were caused by drivers! So, Microsoft made manufacturers to follow the Hardware Compatibility List. That somehow solved most of...

C# stuff nobody told you – delegate is a class! And there is a good reason for that! – A Girl Among Geeks

Sztuka programowania 280 dni, 4 godziny, 41 minut temu AGirlAmongGeeks 186 rozwiń

Many people neglect C# delegates because they cannot find a reason to use them. On the other hand, there is (rather small) group of people who overuse delegates in code that could be easily replaced by literal method call. So when should we use delegates? Well, they show their real power in situations when we need a mechanism to easily switch from one logic to another, without changing our application’s core code. Sounds ok but what does it mean in a real life? It’s time for a fairy tale 😊. Imagine...

New year, new me… Just kidding, no running or yoga plans, but I decided to have a (temporary) break with ‘C# attributes you should know’ series and start with a brand new one – C# facts that somehow surprised me. For the first article, I will show you how (friendly looking, always helpful, good guy...) enum can become an asshole. An asshole who will steal your precious time! One enum value passed to a method, other value received! What’s goin’ on?

Today I (again) focus on the attributes that will make your debugging less painfull :). This time my scribbles should appeal to the programmers who prefer keeping their code clean (and adhere to the principle: the less ‘spare’ code the better). So grab a mug of whatever you like and take a look at DebbugerBrowsable and DebuggerDisplay. The first one may be a good alternative to DebuggerTypeProxyI described in previous post and the second one is just ‘a must’ (really!) that makes life easier.

Today I would like to introduce you to the world of attributes that helps you skip some parts of code while debugging. Most of the C# programmers probably know them well, but I realized that only a few can tell the differences between them. So, ladies and gentlemen, let me introduce you the DebuggerStepThrough and DebuggerHidden.

[DebuggerTypeProxy] is very useful attribute when you have a class that inherits from another class and that one inherits from another one, and some of the classes contain collections of items and hundreds of properties that in fact are not important to you… Strictly speaking, when displaying class’ members while debugging makes you feel like quitting the job.

C# Attributes are very popular for ‘decorating’ assembly with some additional data, usually influencing on the application’s behavior or the way data are managed. You probably already used at least some of them – Obsolete, Serializable, Required, Display, MaxLength, RegularExpression, WebMethod are only a few of hundreds available in .Net world. What is more, you can write your own custom attribute and use it like a build-in one. I will write more about this in the next post. Right now, let’s focus o...

In the last post I wrote about one of the .Net Core 2.0 features – Razor Pages. Today, we will crawl a little bit in this mud… I mean, we will write some code. I chose a simple BMI calculator as a demo project (you can download the code from github). You know, 2 inputs and the code-behind that will tell us if we are very fat or just slightly fat or we are OK and it’s time for another cookie. Because, there is always a time for a cookie, no matter what! A warm up Last time we crea...

W poprzedniej części cyklu o TDD opisałem dlaczego sposób wytwarzania oprogramowania, który praktykowałem na początku się nie sprawdzał i co mnie skłoniło do zainteresowania się Test Driven Development. Dzisiaj opiszę jak wygląda praca zgodnie z TDD. Jak to często bywa w przypadku praktyk zwinnych zasady teoretyczne są dosyć proste, a kluczem do sukcesu jest dyscyplina. Na początku musimy sobie wyjaśnić jedną bardzo ważną kwestię. TDD to nie synonim do pisania testów jednostkowych. Owszem, unit testy ...

Last week I mentioned that together with .Net Core 2.0 we got something that makes my jaw drop. This “little” feature that made me feel slightly uncomfortable is Raroz Pages. In this post, I will show you what it really is or, in fact, what it is not 😊 and if we should be afraid of it... At first glance, you may think that Razor Pages are Microsoft’s attempt of coming back to the ASP.Net WebForms. Which I, unfortunately, still deal with damn too often so b...

This is the third article in the series of the last Microsoft releases and this time I will focus on Visual Studio update – labeled ‘15.3’. I am usually easily pleased with most of the Microsoft IDE features so forgive me all of my ‘ohhh’ but I really love all this changes 😉. No more ‘Add -> Existing Item’! ‘Drag & Drop’ will make the world a better place!

At Monday, we have a highly anticipated release – .Net Core 2.0 ! If it is not enough, we also got a new version of Visual Studio 2017 – update 15.3 (and I will write about it in the nearest feature). So now, I will try to show you the most interesting features of the youngest .Net kid.How to start? Installing update of Visual Studio 2017 is nothing extraordinary, so I will not write about it 😉. What may not seem very obvious, is the fact that we need to (additionally) install .Net Core 2.0 SDK....

When I started learning .Net Core some time ago I was constantly encountering a ‘.Net Standard’. I knew what it means and that it is (somehow 😉 ) important for me but didn’t really care about it. It’s just the standard, right? Who would care about it, when there is so many new things to discover (yep, I was an ignorant!). I changed my mind the last week – when the .Net Standard 2.0 was finally released. So, what the .Net Standard is? It is the standard common for every .Net technology. It ensures ...

Yes, ElasticSearch can be now installed and used much easier (that’s probably not a breaking news because I’m writing about it after one month since I have got a confirmed info) but summer is not the best time for writing a blog’s post 😉.)! In this post I will focus on the dilemma – when exactly a .msi file can be useful and when it is better to stick to the old fashioned command line.
