#30ArticlesForNovember, days 1 to 10

At the end of October, I announced my personal challenge: share on Twitter 30 articles, one for each day of November.

Liquid error: internal

Here's the recap of the first 10 days.

  1. Write tests. Not too many. Mostly integration
  2. The Top Seven Least-Known, Yet Important, C# Features
  3. Learn From Source Code
  4. string vs. String is not a style debate
  5. 12 Tips to Maximize Your Experience at a Tech Conference
  6. What's the difference between a console, a terminal, and a shell?
  7. Testing code that isn't there yet
  8. Under the Hood of C# Alias Types and Namespaces
  9. How to go from 3 views to 1,000,308
  10. 5 C# features that will help you to understand LINQ

CSharp

I mainly work with C#. I love this language. That's why I think that articles 2, 4, 8 and 10 are great. Those are not articles for advanced programmers, but in those articles I found lots of interesting tips and features to learn.

Tests

One of my lacks is testing practices. I have difficulties with TDD. Also, I'm not sure if 100% code coverage is necessary for each project and if it really creates value. I haven't found a final answer, but with articles 1 and 7 I have a bit more confidence in what's going on.

Meta

Not only pure software development but also soft skills and blogging tips. That's what I learned from articles 3, 5 and 9.

The most timely

The article #6, about Console, Terminal and so on, was on my list when I created this challenge. It happened that the author, Scott Hanselman, talked about that topic at Microsoft Ignite. So, why not kill two birds with one stone?

That's a recap of days 1 to 10. Have you already read those articles?
