Darren's Blog Where sense and sensibility don't meet
As a followup to my previous entry on faster reflection with expression trees, I have released the source on code plex and that is where i will actively be distributing updates through. Some noteable changes are that now you retrieve an FastProperty instance through a factory method which will cache the property for subsequent reference. Also, I have ......

Currently I'm working on a data synchronization tool in which I have finally had the need to use reflection. I'll admit that I'm not an expert when it comes to reflection, but it isn't that hard to work with either. And I have heard before about the performance hit you take with reflection, so up until now I hadn't ever needed / wanted to use it, but ......

What would you do if the first time you loaded up visual studio you saw this? From the look on the new guys face... i would categorize the 30 minutes i spent finding ......

I've decided to live the verbose lifestyle in programming. I've learned that usually doing something verbosely ends up working better in the long run (even though it might take a bit longer). I'm definately glad that the visual studio and/or c# compiler team do this as well. Right now our company is in the middle of converting from asp to .NET and have ......
