C# 6 Features: Expression Bodied Methods

by Joe on Feb 4th in .Net, C#

Ok this is going to be a short one. We’ve seen how the Expression Bodied Auto Properties can simplify things a little bit. But, if that is possible, then what about other things with simple bodies? Turns out, Methods are fair game as well. This is turning in to a fairly popular language change. Again, it’s […]

by Joe on Feb 3rd in .Net, C#

Today I’d like to look at something interesting that moves us a little further with Auto-Properties. Expression Bodied Auto-Properties.

Today I was asked an interesting question: how do I test a method which writes to a database, without writing to the database. My answer, of course: “Interfaces”!

An interesting question was posed to me earlier today. Why should I bother upgrading my Excel Spreadsheet application to a .Net Desktop application? Maybe the same question, or something similar has occured to you. Let’s see what we can come up with… A few things come to mind off the top of my head: What […]
