Jogging my C# Memories

Tuesday, 04 August, 2020

I’ve been writing Python at work lately - a web service using Django. Before that, I was doing Java for a few years. Java and Python will both let you reference a class member through an instance variable. In C# that’s a compile error.

An Example

using System;

class Foo {
  public static string bar = "baz";

class MainClass {
  public static void Main (string[] args) {
    Foo f = new Foo();
    } catch {
      Console.WriteLine("Actually, this is a compile error and can't be caught.");
