“Fragile Base Class problem” C# posts by Eric Lippert

Posted by jpluimers on 2013/07/04

I’m not the only a big fan of  almost anything that Eric Lippert writes on tech subjects on both his new personal Fabulous Adventures In Coding blog as well as his old microsoft Fabulous Adventures In Coding blog (a little more than half a year ago, he moved from Microsoft to Coverity.

On his old blog, he had a great series of posts on the “Fragile Base Class problem” (which he calls the Brittle Base Class problem) from a C# perspective.

Be sure to also read the comment threads, as they provide some very valuable information too (for instance, about Extension Methods that can make your code more fragile).

Recommended reading!
