    So what's the deal with this whole C# 3.0 / Linq thingy? (Part 2)

    In the last post i discussed a little bit of background on why we wanted to introduce Linq, as well as a bit of info on what some basic C# Linq looked like. In this post i'm going to dive in a little bit deeper to some other interesting things we're introducing...

    So what's the deal with this whole C# 3.0 / Linq thingy?

    The previous post ended up showing that while visitors are available in C#, they lack usability brought by built in language constructs they could have that would make them an ideal choice to solve our problem. In Java, we saw that anonymous inner classes...

    Only a few hours left (part 4)

    So we left off on the previous post with the question of why we were using Java to work with our new token visitors. Can't visitors be used in C# as well? Well, yes. However, not necessarily as conveniently as with Java. How so? Well, let's take a look...

    Only a few hours left (part 3)

    The previous post on this topic gave us a problem statement for us to look at. Specifically, how to design an internal structure that we want to be easily consumable from many different locations, while not weighing down the structure with any orthogonal...

    Only a few hours left (part 2)

    One of the things we love doing around here is dicussing different design techniques for attacking problems in general and the work we do in specific. One of the very common conversations we have is simply how to structure internal data within the C#...
