Tale of a .Net Component

Most of dot net books or articles on the web are task based, meaning they explain a method or a property or a small task and explain how to do it and the entire MSDN is something similar.

It is very rare to find a full fledged project implementation or a book which explains how to code a project, from scratch to rollout and updates.

If we look at real life that is what one expects, the best practices how to seperate layers of code, when to write components vs when to write controls, how to reuse code, but there were few implementations in the past like the pet shop project where an entire project was given as download for enthusiastic developers to learn. That is how i coded my first dot net project not by learning from a book or from msdn but by looking at the code of a sample dot net project provided by microsoft.

Today was the last post of a 5 part series explaining from scratch how to write a dot net component, i liked this article a lot and hence am posting it on my blog.

The author of this excellent series is Peter Aitken (author of more than 40 books),

I am sure any developer would love to read such articles.
