Good design is not an accident...
This is a nice post from Nick Malic although it's not talking abt peoples who are maturing in to architect.http://blogs.msdn... couldnt help just posting the url only. So here is the artcle itself. :)One potential often missed in a large IT organization is the potential for us to lift up another person's design skills. Perhaps we are competitive, or perhaps sometimes, we figure that "it's all the same anyway," but a lot of IT project designers don't want ......

When should not Design Patterns be used?
1. When the application being built today will not change, the code accurately captures all requirements, and there are no planned enhancements or features. The application you are building will be the first and last release.2. Your application’s code requirements are unique. No software engineer has ever built anything like it. The program does not deal with any of these routing issues like object creation and event notification.3. There is plenty of time to prototype all of your new design ......

Finding Effective Leaders
I found this interesting chapter yesterday when I was dipping into some e-books I got. Thought you will really like this.For the person in charge of putting together a project team, the first task is to decide who will work on the project. This seemingly simple (but more often complex) decision can dramatically affect the project's outcome.Finding leaders within an organization is not a difficult process. By definition, leaders are recognized by those they work with. It's important to remember that ......

Does your role in the development team effects in performance tuning?
Ok guys, its abt performance again. You know in a development team all members have to keep performance in mind right… But that affects ur role in the team.Performance affects different roles in different ways:· As an architect, you need to balance performance and scalability with other quality-of-service (QoS) attributes such as manageability, interoperability, security, and maintainability.· As a developer, you need to know where to start, how to proceed, and when you have optimized ......

How compiler decides a method to inline or not?
When I’m dipping into improving performance of managed code I got wondered how compiler decides a method to inline or not.Ok, First I’ll tell you what is method inlining (to whom, think what’s the hell is this inlining).As all we know there is a cost associated with method calls; arguments need to be pushed on the stack or stored in registers, the method prolog and epilog need to be executed and so on. The cost of these calls can be avoided for certain methods by simply moving the ......

Looking at Visual Sourcesafe vs. Perforce in a higher level
These days I haven’t got much works, but some trainings going on in the new place. Couple of days ago Vidura (my project manager) gave me and couple of other new guys a training on their SCM (Software Configuration Management). It’s Perforce they are using which is a brand new thing to me. In my old place we were using Visual Sourcesafe although it’s giving us lots of problems. As all we know Sourcesafe is good for small projects which get small code base and all the members are ......
