Last week I enjoyed speaking at the SSJU users group meeting… Here are the slides I used. Special thanks to Ben who helped keep me on track during… I couple of interesting conversations came out of that meeting:
- We talked a lot about double check locking and the singleton pattern. How it works in the CLR (thanks the ECMA Standardization effort) and how it is broken in Java.
- We talked about Ngen… I could not do a better job than this: NGen Overview
- Finally I got a chance to do an impromptu RAD development of an application to select attendees to get the SWAG I brought… The key bit of code you need if you are ever in this situation:
new Random (28).ToString()
Overall, I really enjoyed it.. Thanks to Fletcher Johnson who arranged it for me.
