An Overview of .NET Best Practices

November monthly meeting: An Overview of .NET Best Practices by Stephen Ritchie

This presentation is a practical overview of many of the best practices that you can apply to your .NET projects today. We will cover a broad range of practices and principles with an emphasis on tools and technologies in four key areas: build automation, continuous integration, automated testing, and code analysis. Since complex problems often require iterative solutions, this presentation looks at an iterative approach to adopting new and better practices. Through a stepwise process we’ll examine key areas to improve, how to get started and continue to grow the implementation, and what might motivate folks to stick with .NET best practices.

Stephen Ritchie is the author of Pro .NET Best Practices. He has been writing software professionally for over 20 years. He works as a software development consultant at Excella Consulting in the Washington, D.C. area. His passion for following best practices has taught him to appreciate the value of experience, practical know-how, and continuous learning. Stephen is the .NET best practices steward at Excella Consulting, working with .NET project teams to facilitate and sort out the helpful practices from the unhelpful ones, the practicable from the impracticable, and the "sounds good" from the "it really is good" practices and principles.
