Upcoming Event: Code Contracts Lecture

11/03/2013

What are the valid values of this argument? You also probably know that the only way to discover if your assumptions are correct is to execute the code and pray that exceptions won't be flying around. There must be a better way! Enter "Code Contracts". Code Contracts is an experimental project from Microsoft Research which provides a language-agnostic way to express coding assumptions in .NET programs, thus allowing...
