Polecam. Podczas czytania napisałem 3 strony A4 notatek.
Niektóre rozdziały do ponownego przeczytania, bo tak dobre.

This book is a must-read for any developer who is building or consuming .NET libraries. Even if you are familiar with the guidelines (from blogs, FxCop, or elsewhere) this book is outstanding--the authors sprinkle the primary guidelines content with commentary from other bigwigs, including Jeffrey Richter, Rico Mariani, Anders Hejlsberg and more. Through their comments, you get the "story-behind-the-story" (which guidelines are really important, which guidelines they disagree with, which guideli ...more

Recommends it for: anyone writing code that will be used by someone else
The best resource around for API design. Based on the creation of the .NET framework APIs, this is a fantastic set of guidelines for helping developers create easily understood API signatures.

One of my favorite aspects is the break-out text by various additional contributors. They are not afraid to point out their own mistakes (many of which still exist within the .NET libraries) or to question each others' decisions. Since there is very rarely a single right or wrong solution to a problem, I ap

Must read for .NET developer. It's aimed at explaining the rules for developing framework libraries but even if you're not in that business it's packed with insight. The book alternates between dry rules and entertaining commentary by .NET luminaries explaining exceptions, history or just why they miss Hungarian notation.

A must read for every one how creates source code or is responsible for software quality.
This was the eye opener for me for how to build quality into software.

This book shows that the .net Framework has a clear design to it that is pretty decent and useful to follow Microsoft's lead. I recomend it to anyone working with .net.
