Test Driven Development of C# User Interfaces
Description :

In my last article I discussed the values in the Agile Manifesto and what they mean to mean. There are many practices that can be used to make yourself more agile. Short iterations, the planning game, pair programming, and refactoring are a few of the practices present in eXtreme programming. The practice of most value to me, and the practice that many recommend to use as a starting point, is Test Driven Development - TDD.

Patterns in C - Part 5: REACTOR
Description :

This final part of the series will step outside the domain of standard C and investigate a pattern for event-driven applications. The REACTOR pattern decouples different responsibilities and allows applications to demultiplex and dispatch events from potentially many clients.

Patterns in C - Part 4: OBSERVER
Description :

This part of the series will highlight another principle for dependency management and illustrate how both of these principles may be realized in C using the OBSERVER pattern.

by Adam Petersen

Patterns in C - Part 3: Strategy
Description :

This part of the series will investigate a design pattern that adds flexibility to common software entities by letting clients customize and extend them without modifying existing code.
