Step-back while debugging with IntelliTrace

Have you ever stepped while debugging, realized that you’ve taken one step too far, and wished you could step back? Or, while stepping, saw a variable change in an unexpected way, and wish you could go back a step and see what its value was before? Now you can, all without having to restart debugging to recreate the state again!

C# attributes you should know #1: [DebuggerTypeProxy]

[DebuggerTypeProxy] is very useful attribute when you have a class that inherits from another class and that one inherits from another one, and some of the classes contain collections of items and hundreds of properties that in fact are not important to you… Strictly speaking, when displaying class’ members while debugging makes you feel like quitting the job.

Strategy Pattern Implementations In C#

Let’s look at some different ways you could implement the strategy pattern in C#. First, I’d like to briefly mention why we care about design patterns and where the strategy pattern fits in.

Creating a .NET Standard Roslyn Analyzer in Visual Studio 2017

In this post, I give a brief introduction to Roslyn analyzers, what they're for, and how to create a simple analyzer in Visual Studio 2017. I'll show how to create a code analyzer that targets .NET Standard using the new Visual Studio 2017 (15.5) templates, and show how you can debug and test your analyzer using Visual Studio. As the code in Roslyn analyzers can be a bit complex, I'll look at the actual code for the analyzer in a subsequent post - this post just focuses on getting up and running.

A native memory management for .NET

emalloc.NET is a .NET API over the jemalloc native memory allocator and provides .NET applications with efficient data structures backed by native memory for large scale in-memory computation scenarios. jemalloc is "a general purpose malloc(3) implementation that emphasizes fragmentation avoidance and scalable concurrency support" that is widely used in the industry, particularly in applications that must scale and utilize large amounts of memory. In addition to its fragmentation and concurrency optimizations, jemalloc provides an array of developer options for debugging, monitoring and tuning allocations that make it a great choice for use in developing memory-intensive applications.
