C#/.NET Little Wonders: Skip() and Take()
Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain. The index of all my past little wonders posts can be found here. I’ve covered many valuable methods from System.Linq class library before, so you already know it’s packed with extension-method goodness. Today I’d like to cover two small families I’ve neglected to mention before: Skip() and Take(). While these methods seem so ......

Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain.

The index of the C# Little Wonders can be found here. This has been a busy week with a rollout of some new website features here at my work, so I don’t have a big post for this week. But I wanted to write something up, and since lately I’ve been renewing my ......

C#/.NET Little Wonders – The DateTimeOffset struct
Once again, in this series of posts I look at the parts of the .NET Framework that may seem trivial, but can help improve your code by making it easier to write and maintain. The index of all my past little wonders posts can be found here. Anyone who has done any .NET programming has most likely used the DateTime structure at one time or another in their development. It is a handy structure for storing dates, times, or date-times relating to the local time zone (or, alternatively, UTC). That said, ......
