Effective C# Available Today

Sat, 12/1/01

Effective C# is available now from Addison-Wesley. Of course, it’s called Effective Java, but *wow* the overlap is amazing. Some of his items I don’t agree with, e.g. return zero-length arrays instead of null (although I see his side) and others have been fixed” due to advances in C#, e.g. override clone judiciously, but so much of it makes sense in C# (and .NET in general) that it’s scary. I feel like asking AW for the text so that I can port it to C# over the weekend. : )
