We never published a lists of blog posts we liked, so this will be the first time. I gathered some links from my Google Reader shared items, some of those links are old, some are new, but I liked them all. So here is the list of 7 post/articles I recommend:

  1. Phil Haack is talking about the fact that The Design Is Never Right The First Time. I think that it is OK that the design won’t be right the first time, but it should be good at the first time. Explanation: the fact that Phil could change the implementation over night tells me that his initial design was very good. It is not that simple to change the design and the implementation so close to the deadline… I know some projects where you can’t replace some code just like that, it will take too much time to do it…
  2. Scott Hanselman tells that there is a post at the Microsoft StyleCop blog that shows some rules about directives outside and inside the namespace declaration. In his post Back to Basics – Do namespace using directives affect Assembly Loading?, he discovers that we shouldn’t believe everything we read, even on a Microsoft Blog.
  3. Jeff Atwood wrote about Dealing With Bad Apples in a team and that if you tolerate even one developer whom the other developers think is a problem, you’ll hurt the morale of the good developers. I totally agree, those situations lead to a very negative attitude in the team and after some time, it is too late because the “cancer” has spread to the whole team.
  4. Keyvan Nayyeri is talking about the fact that one of the common issues for Visual Studio users is a file lock error when trying to build projects and is offering a solution – File Lock Issue in Visual Studio When Building a Project.
  5. Timm explains about C# Object Initialization because as he says, when constructing a C# Object, it’s important to understand the order in which the object’s fields and constructors are initialized.
  6. Michael Pavlovsky brings us some light and explains about delegates immutability in his post Delegates Gotchas.
  7. Beatriz Costa reminds us that WPF Data Binding can be tricky to debug and shares the techniques she use to debug WPF bindings, including the new debugging improvements which were implemented in the latest 3.5 release. Read about it – How can I debug WPF bindings?

Hope you liked what I like, fill free to tell your opinions about the presented issues.
