Books: .NET Impacts Existing Patterns

.NET Patterns by Christian Thilmany shows you how the .NET Framework impacts existing patterns, which are recurring solutions to software design problems. The author covers patterns in detail, focusing on exception handling and logging the most.

A pattern, in programming terms, is a recurring solution to software design problems. .NET Patterns shows you how the .NET Framework impacts existing patterns. Christian Thilmany covers Framework patterns in detail, focusing on exception handling and logging most. He also discusses presentation patterns, persistence-tier patterns, and several others. Each pattern is broken down into sections for intent, problem, consequences, and implementation. The implementation section is where you actually see source code that drives home the pattern. The author often uses Web service implementations to drive home certain points.

.NET Patterns presents good information, but it doesn't present the information well. Due to the writing style and a confusing layout, I had to read several chapters twice just to get the point that was being made. I did find some of the exception and logging principles useful, especially as distributed computing increases.

If you don't have a good understanding of .NET or patterns before you pick up this book, it won't be as useful to you. You'll find this book helpful if you're looking to expand your knowledge of patterns beyond the original GoF patterns and you understand the .NET architecture.
