Visual Studio 2012 hasn’t been released to the general public yet, but a friend of mine was nice enough to lend me his MSDN copy of both VS and Team Foundation Server (I run Sharepoint 2010 on my intranet, which is a requirement for TFS…the integration is incredible).

Dynamically Inject Validation Controls From A Base ASP.NET Page
I've been out of work this week sick (which really sucks...I don't do very well with idle time, plus I haven't been sick enough to miss work in many years), so what better time to catch up on some blogging.

A General Generics Question -- Don't Fight The Compiler
I've got a pretty firm grasp on generics such as when to use them, why they are useful, etc. I'm with the rest of the .Net camp when I echo how extremely useful they are. I've also learned that if you're fighting the compiler on generics for more than a few minutes, there is a reason... Read More...

VB.Net Equivalent to C# 'As' Keyword -- TryCast
[Update] Apparently the TryCast keyword was introduced in VB 2005. That miffs me a little. Actually, that miffs me a lot since this project is on .Net 1.1 with no plans to move to 2.0 any time soon. [/update] I've been plagued blessed by inheriting a VB.Net app as one of my projects at work. I am not... Read More...

Required Reading -- Framework Design Guidelines
I've been slacking off a bit on my new Programming Paradigms category. Besides the usual "I have a new job and I'm busy" excuses, I've also been reading the daddy of all .Net Programming Paradigms books: Framework Design Guidelines: Conventions, Idioms, and Patterns for Reusable .NET Libraries by Krzysztof...
