FUNDAMENTALS at 6:15: Anatomy of a Lambda Expression

MAIN PRESENTATION at 6:45: Shields Up! Defensive Coding in C# - Jeremy Clark

Coding is easy. Making sure our code is robust and effective takes a bit of effort.

By coding defensively, we prepare our applications to face the challenges of real users in the real world. We'll go through some best practices to handle errors and exceptions, validate user input, and head off the common causes of memory leaks. Our ultimate goal is to provide an excellent experience for our users regardless of the circumstances.

Jeremy Clark is an application developer, Pluralsight author, and Microsoft MVP with over 14 years of experience in all aspects of the development lifecycle. After hours, he puts together demos and technical articles for , a website focusing on .NET technologies. Other times he can be found shredding on a plastic guitar (or playing a real guitar fairly badly). He lives in Anaheim, CA with a seedling redwood tree and his cats, Amanda and Toby.

Come a half hour early (6:15 PM) to enjoy our .NET FUNdamentals series.

Lambda Expressions in C# can be confusing. But once we understand what they are (anonymous function) and some of the special syntax, we find that they are very easy to use.
