NDepend on a Real Project, Round 1.3: An Exception by Any Other Name...

This is the third in a series of blogs looking at things NDepend told me about a personal project of mine - this time a curious problem with Exception naming.

NDepend on a Real Project, Round 1.2: Dead Methods

This is the second in a series of blogs about things NDepend told me about a personal project of mine. This time, methods which are apparently never called.

NDepend on a Real Project, Round 1.1: the Dashboard and a Non-Protected Abstract Class Constructor

The other day I got an email from Patrick Smacchia, generously offering me an NDepend licence on the grounds that if I find it useful I can write about it on my blog. NDepend allows you to write Linq queries against an assembly or a code base to interrogate it for quality issues and see various metrics and reports. I have a personal project underway which I've been working on for some time, so I figured I'd give it a go and see what it can tell me. This is the first of the results.
