A rubber duck beside some Java code Rubber duck debugging , [ 1 ] rubber ducking , [ 2 ] and the rubber duckie test [ 3 ] are informal terms used in software engineering to refer to a method of debugging code. The name is a reference to a likely apocryphal story in which an unnamed expert programmer would keep a rubber duck by his desk at all times, and debug his code by forcing himself to explain it, line-by-line, to the duck. To use this process, a programmer explains code to an inanimate object, such as a rubber duck, with the expectation that upon reaching a piece of incorrect code and trying to explain it, the programmer will notice the error. [ 1 ] In describing what the code is supposed to do and observing what it actually does, any incongruity between these two becomes apparent. [ 4 ] [ edit ] Similar terms

In these last 2 days I’ve been looking at the internals of the System.Web.Routing assembly. I’ve thought about writing some posts with several notes on how it works so that I have a future reference when I need it. Putting it here on my blog will make it easy to find these notes and it may even help the guys that are starting out (but that are a little behind me right now). In this post, I’ll just present the basics (and there really isn’t much to say, believe me). The routing assembly is based on three or four basic types + a module which is responsible for intercepting the requests and performing the mapping magic.

Why would I want to trick Silverlight into treating Dictionary values like real Properties? There are scenarios when complex, data-intensive applications will need to data bind to keys/value pairs or generally determine the properties of a Class at runtime. In cases where there could be large numbers of keys or the keys could change without an application re-deploy, this is a tricky problem to solve. I wrote about using Reflection Emit for two-way data binding to dictionaries quite a while ago . In Silverlight 5, however, you can use ICustomTypeProvider to achieve the same goal in a clean fashion. Data Facets
