One of my pet peeves is seeing people use obscure managed code related terms incorrectly. So, I thought I’d make a little game out of it… Can you match the term to their usage correct?
Fill in the blank:
- The __ is a contract between language vendors and framework authors that allows languages to work with the framework.
- ECMA and ISO standardize the __.
- The __ manages the execution of your code.
- This .NET Framework 2.0 feature known as __s allows you to specify a constrained subset of your code that the runtime can provide stronger execution guarantees.
- The fact that generics work for both value types and reference types is a feature of the __.
Any one got a guess? Extra credit if you can provide the expiation for the acronym and link to a valid usage on the web.
