I just noticed Mitch posted a review of the Framework Design Guidelines.
Mitch gives an interesting categorization of types of tech books... While clearly our foundation in this book is towards .NET Development, I hope time will show it is more timeless than that. When we built the Microsoft Ajax Library we found the guidelines here (in spirit) to be very helpful. And, as I have recently noted Joshua Block of Java fame seems to share many of the same sentiments.
I love the quotes Mitch pull out from Anders:
“I have always felt that a key characteristic of a framework must be consistency”
Thanks for a well written review Mitch!
