Coding since 1983

There are two main reasons why I created this blog. I wanted to pass on my experience, and also engage in conversation with other developers about: Software Architecture Software Design What is Software Architecture? By software architecture, I mean the format and layout of physical systems, e.g. Visual Studio Solutions consisting of individual projects, classes, […]

In time one of the main themes of this blog will be about software architecture and design. There are many different terms used to describe this important subject and sometimes they are used interchangeably. In this blog, “Software Design” will mean the internal design of programs, “Software Architecture” will mean the organisation of, and relationship […]

I just wanted to relate this snippet of information. Often you get wireless networking gear and they are notoriously difficult to set up, the instructions often translated from chinese. Its only in recent years that I learnt of a good way to setup repeaters, which I have not seen in the instruction manuals. Imagine you […]

The C# vs VB.NET debate is as old as .NET itself, although thankfully appears to be calming down in recent years. When I started using .NET over 10 years ago, I started with VB.NET because although I had 6 years C experience from a previous life, I was also experienced with VB6 and VBA, so […]
