to command consideration as today's lingua
franca of modern software development.
I find it sort of surreal to contemplate that, given my own backstory. ...
Last month, I wrote a
post introducing you to T4 templates. Near the end, I included a mention
of GhostDoc's use of T4 templates in automatically generating code comments.
Today, I'd like to expand on that.
To recap very briefly, recall that Ghost Doc allows you to generate things like method

Today, I'd like to tackle a subject that inspires ambivalence in me. Specifically,
