Handling Missing Info in .NET

Hi everyone, C# 8.0 has brought up a lot of great features and among them there is the ‘Nullable Reference Type’ feature. Probably the most impactful feature of C# 8.0 is Nullable Reference Types (NRTs). It lets you make the flow of nulls explicit in your code, and warns you when you don’t act according…

The F# company list

Hi, Last year, I saw a few functional programming languages had repositories on which you could find companies that use those languages. Because that looked like a fun initiative and I couldn’t find an equivalent for F#, I created one and shared it on a few social networks like Reddit. I’m writing about it now…

Promoting F# in a C#-based team

Why does functional programming matter? Functional programming is the new hotness right now, but regardless of the hype, most modern programming languages are introducing FP-friendly features that make a big difference to software quality: Delegates LINQ Read-only properties Pattern matching Readonly value types Tuples As we’re adding features and applying good software engineering practices, we’re…

Hidden .NET Gems – ReactiveUI

Hi, Today, I’m going to talk about an open source gem in .NET for developing WPF applications for people who are interested in reactive and functional programming. To understand the work behind ReactiveUI, one mst understand Rx, or rather Reactive Extensions for .NET. The goal of the syntax of ReactiveUI for read-write properties is to notify…

Hidden .NET Gems – Path.Combine

Hi, I’ve learned about the magic of the method Combine from Path a few months ago. Usually, even in production code, we tend to use string concatenation through either directly using ‘+’ or StringBuilder. Thing is, you do not want to directly use string concatenation to build your path. Try to think about using your…

Bullet points formatter

Hey guys, So this week I worked on a small code kata. The purpose of this project is to simply be able to format text into a bullet point like any text editor allows you to do it. To complete this challenge, I decide to use F# since it’s so great for prototyping and get…

Interesting project : Render stereoscopic 3D images using Kinect 2.0

Hi guys, Last summer, I got into an interesting course entitled “Emerging topics in information technologies”. During the first part of the course, we focused more on 3D computer vision techniques and how to manipulate 3D images.Issues such as depth-image-based rendering were obscure and captivating enough to get me motivated throughout the summer semester. In order…
