.NET Developer Tips and Tricks

We all have our own tips and tricks to what makes good, clean code that leads to powerful applications. We wanted to take a moment and share a couple of insights from some .NET developers on how they make powerful products. What are your tips?

Jérémy Jeanson

ncover_mvp_jeremy_jeanson_twitterMicrosoft Integration MVP Jérémy Jeanson discovered computers very early in life when his father brought home a Lynx: a funny box that produced Bezier curves on a small screen. Intrigued by the machine, he tried the basics, discovered storage on magnetic tape and powerful computers with 64Kb RAM. During his studies, Jeremy adopted .NET technologies, and a new world opened to him.

His best technology tip? KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) and keep an open mind. He believes developers should always keep their options open, neglecting no technology. Jeremy says, “More mastery of a technology offers a better chance to give customers a simple and effective solution…You should not choose the solution you prefer, but one that is most suited.”

He researches and creates prototypes for tactile and gesture recognition solutions with particular attention to the interaction between the two. For over a decade he has been dealing with architecture, design and development of enterprise applications with extreme scalability requirements by implementing the latest technologies.

Gian Paolo has always had a knack for working in teams, so sharing his expertise in communities comes naturally. He believes exchanging ideas is the way to find solutions from which everyone can benefit. His best advice can be summed up in two words: sharing passion. Gian Paolo says, “Always share your expertise, because history teaches us that sharing knowledge always leads to a collective growth.”
