5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect to understand .Net Framework style, 2 May 2010
By

This review is from: Framework Design Guidelines: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reusable .NET Libraries: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reuseable .NET Libraries (Microsoft .Net Development) (Hardcover)
The book is mainly focused on .Net Framework. There are a lot of good comments from the Framework creators that give a good overview of the general .Net Framework design.
It helped me to enhance the quality of my code and make it more standard. I also follow some of the guidelines blindly because they give good examples of what can potentially happen if you don't follow it. The authors share the valuable experience of a lot of years making things right and wrong with honesty.

This review is from: Framework Design Guidelines: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reusable .NET Libraries: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reuseable .NET Libraries (Microsoft .Net Development) (Hardcover)
If there's one software development book which I wish I could give a copy of to everyone in my team and make them read it cover to cover, it is this one. This is not about someone's bureaucratic pet coding standard, this is about creating .NET code (any code, not just the "frameworks" and "libraries" of the title) which is comprehensible, reliable and usable.

Major points are listed as Do, Consider, Avoid and Don't, with plenty of explanatory commentary - why to do it as well as what to do. It's not dogmatic, as the various authors involved sometimes chip in with their own viewpoints which may not always be entirely consistent (and there are some Do's and Don'ts given which I would disagree with). They are also not afraid to point out where they did something daft in the .NET framework itself as an example of what not to do. Examples are given in C#.

This is without a doubt my most essential, the book to save from a burning building.

This review is from: Framework Design Guidelines: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reusable .NET Libraries: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reuseable .NET Libraries (Microsoft .Net Development) (Hardcover)
This book is unique. It allowed me to improve my coding style. It tought me how to write a code, which will be what .NET developers expect in terms of usage. Lots of comments from other developers who affected .NET, so you should be able to understand why they made specific choices. Bear in mind it is about creating frameworks and libs, so some guidelines are not valid for end user apps!
