Før ferien så jeg at ONUG (Odense .NET User Group) holdte et par CodeJazz…samt at der var lørdagshyggehackning hos Eksponent i København. Det fik mig til at tænke på om der mon ikke også er lidt for mange kodehoveder i Århus der sidder derhjemme, og roder med et eller andet projekt de gerne vil gøre ...

So as a really slow followup on my #003 post I’ll add a nice little thing you can do to help you keeping your domainobjects clean.

So after some shuffling around Amazon.co.uk I decided to buy “Code Complete 2nd Edition” by Steven McConnell. So far I haven’t ...
