Fluent Interface for System.Identity – Party Implementation (Part 1)

This latest post on developing a fluent interface for the Oslo System.Identity schema will start an implementation of the Party class. Per the architectural specifications for the fluent interface, the Party class will adhere to the Law of Demeter and “Tell, Don’t Ask”. As the Party class is large, and important to the System.Identity model,…

One of these considerations has already manifested in the following snippet…

Part 1 also covered a number of architectural and design specifications that will be followed in the shaping of the interface’s code. In this post I’ll continue the crafting of the fluent interface by exploring…
