Software Principles Using C#



Software Principles Using C# by Ziggy Rafiq

Software Principles Using C#

There are several software principles commonly used in C# development, which are as follows.

  • SOLID Principles: The SOLID principles are a set of five principles that guide the design of software systems. They include the Single Responsibility Principle (SRP), Open-Closed Principle (OCP), Liskov Substitution Principle (LSP), Interface Segregation Principle (ISP), and Dependency Inversion Principle (DIP).
  • KISS Principle: The KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid) principle states that software systems should be simple and straightforward, without unnecessary complexity.
  • YAGNI Principle: The YAGNI (You Ain't Gonna Need It) principle states that developers should only add functionality when it is actually needed, instead of adding it in anticipation of future needs.
  • DRY Principle: The DRY (Don't Repeat Yourself) principle states that developers should aim to write reusable code and avoid repetition.
  • Separation of Concerns (SOC): The Separation of Concerns principle states that different parts of a software system should be separated into distinct, independent components that are focused on solving specific problems.
  • Law of Demeter (LOD): The Law of Demeter states that an object should only communicate with its immediate neighbours and not know the inner workings of other objects.

By following these software principles, developers can write maintainable, reusable code, and are less prone to bugs and errors. This can reduce the amount of time and effort required to develop and maintain a software system and can make it easier to add new features in the future.

I will upload code samples for Software Principles Using C# on the following URL Address on my GitHub Repository. (Currently, it is not available ) and I will be writing blog posts on DRY Principle

How to use Enum Data Values with .Net 6.0 Framework and Entity Framework Core 6

How to use Enum Data Values with .Net 6.0 Framework and Entity Framework Core 6 Overview An Enum (Enumeration) is a group of constants that are read-only value types. By default, the first value of the Enum variable is 0 i.e. Here we will create an Enum of Priorities type with read-only values of Highest, Normal and Low. We will set the read-only values using an integer assigning a number next to the value. By default, the integer value will start with 0. Here we will be assigning the integer value next to the Enum value such as in the below example and we will use a comma (,) to separate the item in the list of Enum(Enumeration).  We create Enum by using the Enum keyword and then using class, interface, and abstract. The reason we use an Enum is to ensure we improve our application performance and improve application readability, and maintainability, and reduces the complexity of the application hence why if you take a look at the example below of Status (NotStarted, Started, Complete

A Complete Guide to Using GUIDs in C# with Code Examples

  Overview In this post, we are looking at GUIDs (Globally Unique Identifiers), which are widely used in C# for generating unique identifiers for objects, entities, and resources in a system. In this post, we'll explore the basics of GUIDs in C#, their advantages, and how to convert strings to GUIDs. In this post, we have used Guid Generator to create the GUID from the following URL Address What is GUID GUID (Globally Unique Identifier) in C# is a 128-bit value that is used to identify objects, entities, or resources in a unique manner across different systems and applications. It is also known as UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) in some other programming languages.   GUIDs are generated using a combination of unique factors such as the MAC address of the network adapter, the current time and date, and a random number. The resulting GUID is a string of 32 hexadecimal digits separated by hyphens, such as "b86f2096-237a-4059-8329-1bbcea72769b&

Primitives Data Types and None-Primitives Data Types in C# with Code Examples

  Overview I wrote this post to provide an explanation of primitive and non-primitive data types in C#. C# is a strongly typed programming language, where each variable and expression must have a specific data type. C# data types are categorized into two primary groups: primitive data types and non-primitive data types. Primitive data types are the simplest data types available in programming languages. They are typically pre-defined data types and can represent a single value, such as a boolean value, character, or integer. Examples of primitive data types include int, char, float, double, and boolean, which are common in programming languages like C++, C, and Java. Non-primitive data types are also referred to as composite data types or reference data types. They are constructed from primitive data types and are more complex than primitive data types. Non-primitive data types can hold multiple values and allow for the creation of more intricate data structures like tables, lists,
