Another hodgepodge of links today.
- C#: Uninitialized instance variables - I remember hearing early on in my experience with C# that variables were automatically initialized. For some reason this issue popped into my head again recently, and I just had to look it up. It turns out the issue is a bit more complicated.
- wordUnit: A Document Testing Framework - Document-Driven Documentation is the wave of the future!
- The Things That Pass For Simple I Can't Understand - I've always subscribed to the KISS principle, but determining the simplest thing to do is often very complicated.
- SubSonic: Some Clarifications - Rob Conery has assured the community that SubSonic is not going away...ever. All I can say is: Thank god!
- Asshole-Driven Development - A great listing of some hilarious (and sadly accurate) software engineering methodologies. The ones that were most recognizable to me were the Get Me Promoted Methodology (GMPM), Shovel-Driven Development (SDD), and No Customer Left Behind Development (NCLBD). Make sure to read the comments.
- Creating My Own Personal Hell - A great post about the pitfalls of being the sole developer at a company. After finding myself in this position in my first job out of college (although it was definitely not as bad as the one portrayed in this post), I vowed that I would never take another job at a company without an established team of developers.
