Slight Diversion

1 07 2013

Well, as usual, I want to do more than I can 😛 My little Test-Drum framework will have to be put on a low cooking fire for the next month I think. Until I get my bearings straight. Beyond that, I’ve also registered to *gasp* Twitter. As you can see the whole social side of the internet is not really my forte. I’ve so far only written one post about the #region keyword in Visual Studio 2010. Now I’m not sure but I think I wrote about it a bit on this blog (not going to look back, but you, yes you, can). My stance so far has been quiet tolerance. I guess I thought they were alright but not for me. Well, they aren’t alright. Let me put it as clearly as I can.

Regions are rubbish.

And they annoy the hell out of me.

I can’t stand looking at code that has ’em. In fact the first thing I do is search/replace for all #regions in a codebase (when I have the chance) and erase the little ****ers. Regions make code harder to read, harder to change and harder to understand. They have NO value. None. Nada. Zip. Zilch… Don’t use them.

Write smaller classes.

Put public stuff up and private stuff down and just you know, keep your shit organized man.

#region.. just say no!
