Matt mentioned the addition of tuples to CLR 4.0. Very happy to see that. Tuples help avoid the unnecessary introduction of types that serve merely to aggregate data. Types or classes to aggregate data was a very mid 90s programming technique, manifest in code featuring classes with data members, getter and setter accessor methods, and no significant behaviour.

And in other news: I was fascinated to stumble across MarketSci and it’s blog. The recent post on the effect of drastic market moves on automated trading strategies was intriguing. Finally, thanks to Marc for the heads up on this one. I’ll be keeping an eye on it.

    I keep stumbling upon new blogs in the least likely of places. In the case of Rodrick’s blog, it was through LinkedIn. He request me to be a contact of his, I when I looked at his profile, I saw that he had a blog. Not only that, but he has been blogging for as long as we have!

    Where is Crispin when you need him!
