Strange C# Syntax if You Come from the Java World

I have bumped into some strange syntax over the last couple of days and I just found that wikipedia’s page on C# covers a lot of the abnormalities that I have been trying to understand. Things like Lamda expressions ( => ), the Null Coalese operator ( ?? ), Nullable types ( int? ), and Automatic Properties (public string Name { get; private set; } ) have all shown up in our websites code base and have required me to find out what exactly they do before I could start working with them.

Once you know the correct terminology’s library is certainly the best place for getting complete information on these characteristics of the C# language.


Getting Started with ASP.Net

I have just begun working on an established codebase for an eCommerce site that uses utilizese Commerce Server 2007, BizTalk 2006, and Dynamics NAV (Navision 4.0). The site is written in C# and ASP.Net and so I have been getting up to speed on the related technologies and how to work with them and I figured I would share some ASP.Net related links that I found today.

I have not been involved in web development before and many of the paradigms are new to me so I found it very helpful to familiarize myself with how an ASP.Net application actually lives and breathes.
