My rant for the day is about trying to use Microsoft C# and LINQ and XML and WPF. I spend more time trying to figure out simple stuff, because nothing exists as solid examples of how to do what I need to do.
I spend so much of my time trying to find decent examples of how to do stuff on the net, and find nearly nothing.
I know people are doing this stuff, is it because its a closed source system and sharing the code just isn't "cool" by the users?
I am sick of it, and I am going to try to lead by example and post my minor victories in trying to do things using this great platform.
Well, couple of reasons...
1. Code should be free. Not as in not get paid for it, but how to do something should be shared, knowledge isn't worth anything unless you share it.
2. Selfish reasons, I can find different things I find much easier and watch my progression through the products
3. Cause I haven't really found a good reason to keep posting regularly on my blog, and this just might be a good excuse.
So, there you have it, my rant for the day and my promise to share my code examples of what I am trying to do.
