FxCop and StyleCop

It runs on compiled DLLs.
As it runs on compiled IL code, it can be used for C#, VB.NET, in short any language which compiles to IL code.
StyleCop
Keep in mind that it is not a Microsoft product. It is not even a Team System Power Tool. It is a tool developed by a very passionate developer at Microsoft (on evenings and weekends). There's no support, servicing, evolution or anything else beyond what he can get done in his spare time. Style checking is an interesting feature and may show up in an official product at some point down the road.
It runs on actual source code.
Currently it runs only on C#.
The ultimate goal of StyleCop is to allow to produce elegant, consistent code that team members and others who view developer code will find highly readable.
Code Analysis
No spell checking - FxCop uses a dictionary (plus custom dictionary) to check the names of methods, classes, etc. Code Analysis doesn't seem to do that.
Help - FxCop not only complained when something was wrong but provided a great deal of help/hints to resolve the problem. Code Analysis just seems to present the problem with no sign of a hint.
Note that Code Analysis is only available in the Premium and Ultimate editions of Visual Studio 2010 and also Visual Studio 2005 & 2008 Team System.

FxCop analyzes programming elements in managed assemblies, called targets, and provides an informational report that contains messages about the targets, Messages include suggestions about how to improve the source code used to generate them. FxCop represents the checks it performs during an analysis as rules. A rule is managed code that can analyze targets and return a message about its findings. Rule messages identify any relevant programming and design issues and, when possible, supply information about how to fix the target.
Using FxCop, you can perform the following tasks:
Control which rules are applied to targets.
Exclude a rule message from future reports.
Apply style sheets to FxCop reports.
Filter and save messages.
Save and reuse application settings in FxCop projects.
Working in the FxCop Application Window
The FxCop application window displays the targets and rules included in a project, and the messages that are generated when an analysis is performed. The window is divided into three major areas: the configuration pane on the left, the messages pane on the right, and the properties pane at the bottom.

Define Usage of Lock Keyword in C#

                      The lock keyword may be useful especially when you are using threading in your application. It ensures that only one thread can enter and use the critical section. If another thread needs to use the critical section, it has to wait until the previous object is released.

Descendants vs. Elements in Linq to XML

Starting with Elements(XName).
Returns a filtered collection of the child elements of this element or document, in document order.
Only elements that have a matching XName are included in the collection.
And secondly the Descendants(XName) method.
Returns a filtered collection of the descendant elements for this document or element, in document order.
Only elements that have a matching XName are included in the collection.

Use Proper Class Layout
Use the following order to position all your members inside the class. The resulting layout is the combination of all the lists provided with descending priority. That means that on the top of the file there will be all public const fields followed by internal const fields.
1.     Fields
2.     Delegates
3.     Events
4.     Properties
5.     Indexers
6.     Constructors
7.     Finalizers
8.     Methods
9.     Other stuff
Than follow access modifier.
1.     public
2.     internal
3.     protected
4.     private
After access modifier follow the type of the member.
1.     const
2.     static
3.     readonly
4.     nothing
The least significant sorting attribute is a declaration modifier.
1.     virtual
2.     abstract
3.     override
4.     new

Designing Pattern

Designing Pattern

  1. Creational Patterns
  2. Strucutural Patterns
  3. Behavioral Patterns

1. Creational Patterns:
Abtaract Factory:
 Provide an interface for creating families of related or dependent objects without specifying their concrete classes.
Builder Patterns:
 Separate the construction of a complex object from its representation so that the same construction process can create different representations.
Factory Method:
 Define an interface for creating an object, but let subclasses decide which class to instantiate. Factory Method lets a class defer instantiation to subclasses.
Prototype Patterns:
 Specify the kind of objects to create using a prototypical instance, and create new objects by copying this prototype.
Singleton Patterns:
   Ensure a class has only one instance and provide a global point of access to it.
2. Strucutural Patterns
Adapter :
  Convert the interface of a class into another interface clients expect. Adapter lets classes work together that couldn't otherwise because of incompatible interfaces.
Bridge :
   Decouple an abstraction from its implementation so that the two can vary independently.
Composite:
 Compose objects into tree structures to represent part-whole hierarchies. Composite lets clients treat individual objects and compositions of objects uniformly.
Decorate:
   Attach additional responsibilities to an object dynamically. Decorators provide a flexible alternative to subclassing for extending functionality.
facade:
  Provide a unified interface to a set of interfaces in a subsystem. Fa├žade defines a higher-level interface that makes the subsystem easier to use.
Flyweight:
  Use sharing to support large numbers of fine-grained objects efficiently.
Proxy:
 Provide a surrogate or placeholder for another object to control access to it.
3.Behavioral Patterns
Chain of Responibility:
 Avoid coupling the sender of a request to its receiver by giving more than one object a chance to handle the request. Chain the receiving objects and pass the request along the chain until an object handles it.
Command:
 Encapsulate a request as an object, thereby letting you parameterize clients with different requests, queue or log requests, and support undoable operations.
Interpreter:
  Given a language, define a representation for its grammar along with an interpreter that uses the representation to interpret sentences in the language.
Iterator:
     Provide a way to access the elements of an aggregate object sequentially without exposing its underlying representation.
Mediator:
 Define an object that encapsulates how a set of objects interact. Mediator promotes loose coupling by keeping objects from referring to each other explicitly, and it lets you vary their interaction independent.
Memento:
 Without violating encapsulation, capture and externalize an object's internal state so that the object can be restored to this state later.
Observe:
    Define a one-to-many dependency between objects so that when one object changes state, all its dependents are notified and updated automatically.
State:
 Allow an object to alter its behavior when its internal state changes. The object will appear to change its class.
Strategy:
 Define a family of algorithms, encapsulate each one, and make them interchangeable. Strategy lets the algorithm vary independently from clients that use it.
Template Method:
 Define the skeleton of an algorithm in an operation, deferring some steps to subclasses. Template Method lets subclasses redefine certain steps of an algorithm without changing the algorithm's structure.
Visitor:
  Represent an operation to be performed on the elements of an object structure. Visitor lets you define a new operation without changing the classes of the elements on which it operates.

Purpose of the MustInherit keyword in VB.NET

MustInherit keyword in VB.NET is used to create an abstract class.

Use the keyword NotOverridable in VB.NET and sealed in C#.

Difference between the Take and Skip clauses


               The Take clause returns a specified number of elements. For example, you can use the Take clause to return two values from an array of numbers. The Skip clause skips the specified number of elements in the query and returns the rest. For example, you can use the Skip clause to skip the first four strings in an array of strings and return the remaining array of string.

Define use of SqlCommandBuilder

           SQL CommandBuilder object is used to build & execute SQL (DML) queries like select insert update& delete.
