Thought it was about time I start these back up. Simply a few links I find interesting, perhaps some short brief thoughts that don’t necessarily deserve their own post, or whatever tidbits I may find interesting.
- I hate nulls, I hate checking for them, I hate having to muddy my code up testing for null. In code that I write I try to avoid return nulls as much as possible. John Sonmez seems to agree with me in this nice article.
- I love enums… I love using them, I love the readability they give me… I love the aspect of limiting my choices on values so I don’t have to worry about bad values, I love not having to check for nulls…I could go on, but it seems once again John Sonmez agrees with me. Read his article.
- I love var….ok, that is an exaggeration….I do like it though. Resharper suggests strongly that I use it (by default anyway), so I got in the habit of doing so. I’m not extreme, I only use it when the type of the variable is evident from surrounding code. Yes, here again John writes and speaks of his conversion to the var side.
- jQuery is just cool. The plugins people create are incredible. Here is a cool one I found today, jQuery Circulate. That’s one I just want to find a use for.
