Paul Sheriff was a real character at the start of his MVVM in XAML session. There was a lot of sarcasm and self deprecation going on prior to the . That is never a bad way to get things rolling right after lunch. Then things got semi-serious. The presentation itself had a number of surprises, but not all of them had to do with XAML. When he flipped over his company’s code generation tool it took me off guard. I am used to generator that create code for a whole project, but his tools were able to ...

The reasoning for only allowing inheritence where the library developer specifies is the argument that library developers are experts and library users aren't. He basically goes on to say that he believes in open inheritence, where you rely on the developers using your library to be smart enough to not screw ...
