BEST COURSE CHOICE for beginners and intermediate C# developers who want to take their programming skills to the next level.
Code reviews sometimes expose truly terrible code - mangled object hierarchies, judicious use of Parse and ToString, flow-control logic using Exceptions, and "reinvented wheel" classes littered with bugs.
In fact the same bad code tends to crop up over and over, which is why we call them "Anti-Patterns".
Anti-patterns are common responses to a recurring problem that are ineffective and highly counterproductive.
In a series of short lectures I am going to show you the most common C# anti-patterns. I will introduce each anti-pattern, show you why the pattern is bad, and how you can refactor the code to resolve the problem.
Why should you take this course?
You should take this course if you are a beginner or intermediate C# developer and want to take your skills to the next level. A thorough understanding of all common anti-patterns will help you enormously in your understanding of C# and the .NET Framework.
Or you might be working in a developer team and about to perform your first code review. The examples in this course will help you spot bad code quickly, and give you an idea what senior developers like to see at when they review code.
Or maybe you're preparing for a C# related job interview? This course will give you an excellent foundation to answer any questions about code quality they might throw at you.
