Live Webinar: Deconstructing Clippy – Common Issues for an Uncommon Extension, April 16th
Join us Wednesday, April 16th, 15:00 – 16:00 GMT (11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EDT) for our free live webinar, Deconstructing Clippy, with Matt Ellis.
Clippy for ReSharper is a good April Fools’ day joke made better by the fact that it’s a real, fully functioning extension – replacing the Alt+Enter menus as well as integrating with navigation and refactoring. It’s also a great demonstration of the varied and often surprising ways you can extend ReSharper.
This webinar will take a deep dive into Clippy’s implementation. We won’t look at the standard extension points (it doesn’t use any!), but will look at common platform issues faced by all plugins, such as versioning, components, lifetime management and threading. And we’ll look at some of the more interesting issues thrown up by trying to add a cartoon character to a productivity tool.
Space is limited, please register now.
The source code for Clippy for ReSharper can be found on GitHub: https://github.com/citizenmatt/resharper-clippy. It’s not required for the webinar.
