Framework Design Guidelines: The Art of Building a Reusable Class Library
Brad Abrams
This session presents the best practices for designing frameworks, which are reusable object-oriented libraries. The guidelines are applicable to frameworks ranging in size and in their scale of reuse from large system frameworks to small components shared among several applications. These guidelines were created in the early days of the .NET Framework development. They started as a small set of naming and design conventions but have been enhanced, scrutinized, and refined to a point where they are generally considered the canonical way to design frameworks at Microsoft. They carry the experience and cumulative wisdom of thousands of developer hours over three versions of the .NET Framework. This course is presented by members of the Common Language Runtime Development Team, who educate and enforce these guidelines across Microsoft.
