Here's another area where the two languages differ.
Standard function breakpoints probably help in most of the debugging sessions. But, sometimes, there's simply too much code to check, too many objects or cases. What if you want to filter out code that generates a breakpoint? Here's a look at conditional breakpoints.
C# might be more elegant with escape sequences, but that doesn't mean Visual Basic is weaker in this area.
When you debug a C++ application, the debugger can take a number of detours through lots of trivial functions or code from third-party libraries. You can filter out those unnecessary paths and have the debugger focus on just the code you want.
How C# and Visual Basic handle characters and single-character strings is a bit inconsistent. There's no tidy solution, but it's something you do need to know.
Recompiling source code while debugging is possible, but sometimes your C++ project might not be configured to use it.
As you're debugging in Visual C++, sometimes you'll see a message in the Output Windows and then try to go the code it refers to, which can take a few steps. Here's a little trick in coding efficiency that simplifies moving from log messages to source code.
Or, how lifetime can mean different lengths of time, depending on whether it's procedural- or block-level.
Debugging is a crucial part of the development process. In this new series of tried and true C++ tips, we look at the basics of debugging and step through some more advanced debuggings tips for C++ developers.
It pays to be explicit and not use the emotional defaults of each language.
Nothing and null are one and the same, except in the language of programming.
Case matters when moving from one language to another and, often, variable naming conflicts can be as simple as that.
ASP.NET Identity is a simple but robust framework allowing you to easily inject custom authentication logic into your applications.
The open source library RestSharp is designed to make consuming APIs from .NET easy and work across platforms.
You can easily slide middleware and other custom code into the ASP.NET pipeline by taking advantage of the Microsoft implementation of the OWIN specification in the coming Visual Studio 2015.
