Software Quote

Usually I don’t post quotes, but this one has gotten enough positive feedback, I guess I’ll post it.
 
The conversation context:  A VB6 developer moving to C# and posed the question "Where is the Resume Next in C#?".
 
Here was my reply:
 
My VB.NET suggestions:

Exception Handling?  (formally know as ErrorHandling)

Take the vb6 mentality of exception handling and do the 4 following things:

1.  Put it in a brown paper bag.
2.  Take it to someone’s house you don’t like.
3.  Set it on fire.
4.  Run away from it as fast as you can.

(A great post by Krzysztof Cwalina on exceptional handling)

I was able to attend Krzysztof’s presentation on Reusable Frameworks at TechEd2008, and he mentioned a future version (V2) of his book Framework Design Guidelines.  Sweet!
