Debug-Developing a CSharp Console Application

One of my old computer science professors, back in the days, used to say, if you use a debugger while you are writing your code, you are a bad programmer. My, oh my. What an idiot. It makes perfect sense

NuGet Packages for unstable, in-development Libraries – cont. (III)

Previously, I wrote about using one global msbuild xml file to override nuget package content for local development. While this does work, it comes with a warning if multiple packages use this mechanism: ***Test\packages\***.0.7.1-prerelease-\build\native\***.targets(7,5): warning MSB4011: “***Test\packagesoverride.xml.user” cannot be imported

GLM 0.9.9 NuGet

GLM is a nice, lean, good math library for OpenGL. It’s header-only. Does a NuGet package make sense anyway? I say “Yes”. The simple usage and the clean versioning make up for the minimal additional overhead. I am now also
