In this third, final post we will build more real world example – we will parse arithmetic expressions that include (besides addition and subtraction) multiplication and […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/roboblob/~4/r5BxQSALSxw" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.roboblob.com/2014/12/16/recursive-descent-parser-for-arithmetic-expressions-with-real-numbers/feed/4Recursive Descent Parser with C# – Boolean logic expressions

To be (True) or !(To be True)? This time we will try to tackle little bit more complex example that will parse and evaluate Boolean logic expressions […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/roboblob/~4/nQrqZiHqlfY" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.roboblob.com/2014/12/14/recursive-descent-parser-with-csharp-boolean-logic-expressions/feed/2Introduction to Recursive Descent Parsers with C#

Well no, quite the opposite. Lately i have been solving some of the programming challenges on talentbuddy and bumped into task to create parser and solver for simple arithmetic expressions in string format, something like this: “(2+2)-(3-(6-5))-4″. On first thought this seems trivial, but only until the moment you start implementing […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/roboblob/~4/ffM2SvAmXjg" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.roboblob.com/2014/12/12/introduction-to-recursive-descent-parsers-with-csharp/feed/3Using await to build cool UI tutorials

Maybe it was not obvious how we can expand that idea and create some useful application, so i decided to expand the whole concept in this post.

I believe that most of C# developers know about the new language features for asynchronous programming with async and await keywords but how many of us are really exploiting them to full extent? Recently i was watching the excellent C# Language Internals course on PluralSight.com by Bart De Smet and […]<img src="http://feeds.feedburner.com/~r/roboblob/~4/jzche8qPHuo" height="1" width="1" alt=""/>http://blog.roboblob.com/2014/10/23/awaiting-for-that-button-click/feed/1Introducing the Unit Testing Context Pattern

I write unit and integration tests almost every day and along the way i learned all kinds of different tricks and gotchas on how to be more productive and how to write less fragile tests.
