SSW Update - Do you implement an error logger?

[ the cutting edge ]

G'Day Developers!

When building an application for a client, you should implement functionality which will notify you personally whenever it throws an exception and log the issue for review.

There are a few reasons to do this:

  • It gives you a sense of ownership of the project
  • It makes finding out what's going wrong easier
  • You can keep a history so you can see if there are any recurring exceptions
  • You can ensure the long term quality of you application
  • You are not just washing your hands and leaving at the end of the release

You will find that this will lead to more clients who are happy to use you into the future because they know that you care about their application.

Cheers until next time, Adam

MSBuild and Team Build

William Bartholomew will take us through an introduction to MSBuild before stepping up a gear and embarking on a journey to uncover the delights of the Team Build. Learn how to create a Build Type and see how you can simplify the entire end-to-end build automation process.

You will see how you can customize the build process including things such as: build preparation, fetching source code, build number generation and labelling, compilation as well as deploying to a drop location and logging your build.

To finish off, William will talk about extensibility and how you can write your own custom tasks.

Domain Modelling

When we design a solution, the architecture that we implement should act as a lever, allowing us to solve the increasingly complex problems we face with minimal effort. "Domain Modelling", the approach of designing applications by focussing on the natural needs of the problem domain, is one such lever; providing us with a solid, robust architecture that easily handles this ever-increasing complexity.

In this session, Paul Stovell will describe a number of common but advanced domain modelling patterns, and demonstrate how they can be applied practically in .NET.
