It's one of the paradoxes of blogging that most every blogger (including myself) is sharing what they know right now (let's quietly ignore those who blog purely for traffic and vanity). Since everyone is learning, this can result in poor or misleading information being shared just as much as good information. Keep this in mind as you read any blog - including this one. How experienced is the writer? How well do they really know what they're talking about? Do they blog about their mistakes as well as their successes?

I'm just as flawed as other bloggers, so you should feel encouraged to check my ideas for yourself. Keep the date in mind as well - in our fast moving field, even good ideas can become obsolete.

To this point, we’ve been able to run each of our screens by hand-coding the necessary object initialization. We could continue this as we move forward, but the complexity would grow with each additional screen we complete. Instead, let’s take the time to configure a dependency injection framework that will take care of the complexity for us.

Saturday, July 20 2019 wordtutor-redux csharp

In addition to the unit tests we’re already writing for each of our core classes, we should also write some integration tests to ensure our types interact properly.
