Enough of the stand-up meetings please, just WRITE SOME CODE
Comment A couple of months back, Dutch computer scientist Erik Meijer gave an outspoken and distinctly anti-Agile talk at the Reaktor Dev Day in Finland.
“Agile is a cancer that we have to eliminate from the industry,” said Meijer; harsh words for a methodology that started in the nineties as a lightweight alternative to bureaucratic and inflexible approaches to software development.
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
Today I took a plunge and decided to resign from Mizuho. While all the team members are great to deal with the boss is into micro-managing, trying to control every aspect of your work.This has lasted for several months now and pushed me over the edge, I absolutely hated coming to work.

Liking all things new, I went ahead and bought a few books on various web technologies:
My plan is to get up to speed with those technologies so that they can be put on my CV. Back in the days (2003 – 2005) I used to be a very good web developer. It would be very exiting to see the web development has progressed since
The automatic mechanism cannot be deterministic, because it must rely on on the GC to discover whether the object is referenced or not. At times this behaviour is a show stopper. because temporary “resource leaks” or holding a shared resource locked for slightly longer than necessary might be unacceptable in an application. At others, it’s perfectly acceptable. I will focus on the scenarios where it is.
Any type can override protected Finilize method defined by System.Object to indicate that it required automatic finalisation. However the C# syntax for requesting automatic finalisation on a class A is to implement method ~A(). This method is called finiliser a must be invoked when the object is destroyed.
Incidentally any type can have a finalizer, even the value types. However the finalizer on the value type object will never be invoked.
