In September 2005, Addison Wesley published a book which was a result of the contributions of many famous names in the .NET world and could become a popular book for professional .NET developers in a short while.  That book is Framework Design Guidelines written by Krzysztof Cwalina and Brad Abrams, two vital members of the Common Language Runtime and the .NET Framework teams at Microsoft.

The main purpose of this book is to provide a collection of guidelines for .NET developers and to show them how they can write their programming codes and design their APIs to achieve the best results based on the .NET Framework capabilities and features.

This book does not want to step into programming details so you do not see many code samples.  Instead of showing these code snippets, the book consists of various guides that are listed with short descriptions by authors and other developers have added their comments and thoughts about each guide.

There are four kinds of guides in this book: DO, CONSIDER, DO NOT and AVOID.  Each guide in this book falls into one of these categories.

Framework Design Guidelines can be a part of the TO READ list for all professional .NET developers who are going to design a framework or a simple library.  It contains 9 chapters and three appendixes.

There is a DVD available with this book which contains a rich collection of sample codes and some related presentations on topics that are covered in this book.
