Coding Kata videos: Bowling game

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/22

A long and shorter while ago, I wrote about practicing your coding and test driven development skills:

Here are some Coding Kata videos of the Bowling Game Kata in various languages and environments. Some of them are dumb (no audio) just like good practice usually is. Note: it helps to know a bit about 10 Pin Bowling Scoring rules.

And since I want to learn Haskell and have done a lot of Tic-Tac-Toe demos inthe past:

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/07

During any software life cycle, you will want to phase out some code, and most likely want to mark code to be phased out in the future.

So here are two examples on how to do that in C# and in Delphi that just shows the effects of obsoleting/deprecating code.

Developer Assistant for Visual Studio with access to millions of code samples- via: Google+

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/04/02

I’m going to experiment with this. Most likely the quality of the code samples will be the biggest factor in like/dislike result.

Visual Studio – Google+.

IlMerge is on NuGet.

Posted by jpluimers on 2015/03/19

IlMerge is a great way to merge multiple .NET assemblies into one, and I use it most often to combine assemblies with console applications so I end up with one executable..

However getting the latest version always was a hassle as the ilmerge download link was unclear about the version number.

Until I found out that IlMerge is on NuGet.

To get started with NuGet, either download the NuGet GUI or command-line version, then use either of these entry points to work with NuGet packages:

There is much more to the Package Manager Console and the Package Manager Dialog.
