Practice

I have a bad habit. I answer most of the questions I get by using google. So, I thought I'd blog for everyone this one. Practice! Try google with different search strings. It comes with practice. In the end you'll be able to find anything you want from an authentic source effortlessly. If you are looking for something from a specific website, try site search on google which is quite easy. For instance, if I am looking for delegates tutorial on microsoft's website I would type in the search textbox on google: delegate tutorial site:microsoft.com and hit enter. That'll search all of microsoft.com and msdn.microsoft.com, research.microsoft.com etc. Get the idea?

It's a pleasure. It's interesting to learn from other people's experiences. If you recall my first lecture in OOP, education is about learning from two things: 1- other people's experiences, 2- Own experiences. By experiences, I also mean mistakes. So, reading others blogs is also an enriching experience, which I do (rarely). I must confess that I am not good, just another guy trying to do the right things in life whenever possible, and I dont succeed quite often.
