Converting nearly every type to another type in .NET
“.NET does not provide a generic way for conversions across all types. Even the base types are not handled the same way. And not all possible conversions across the base types are supported. We had a look at the different techniques and ended up with the
UniversalTypeConverter as a generic solution filling the gaps and with some useful options on top.
Maybe, it is a historical thing that
TypeConverter is not used on all types. But this is definitely the way to go if you want to provide your own types being convertible.”

Delegates in C# for beginners
“Delegates as a technical concept in C# create a lot of confusion in the beginner’s mind. It is a fairly simple concept, but most of the examples floating around on the web are so trivial that they do not expose the real benefits of delegates.”
.NET Runtime Localization
– Switch cultures at runtime – automatically updating all localized elements
– Use the existing Resource file structure (*.resx files), which can be maintained in Visual Studio
– Keep design-time support for localized elements working in Expression Blend (and hopefully other XAML design applications)
