My previous two posts about Bertrand Meyer’s Design by Contract (DbC) were mainly introductions to pre- and post-conditions and class invariants and how they can be implemented in C# – in this one we’ll check out what implications DbC has if it is combined with the inheritance mechanism of object-oriented programming languages.
Everything on Tag: DbC
If you happen to speak German, you can watch the video of my latest talk at the .NET User Group Regensburg which I held on last Monday, the 25th. of January. In it, we discuss the basics of Design by Contract with its Pre- and Post-Condtions, Class Invariants, and Variants and Invariants for loops as well as a framework called Code Contracts that provides functionality to introduce DbC in .NET. Furthermore, we check out alternatives to Code Contracts and the importance of executable specifications.
