Tweaking immutable objects with C# and Fody

Immutable data structures provide a lot of benefits to programmers, especially when representing domain value objects. Immutability is an essential part of functional programming paradigm. The concept is useful in object-oriented languages too, but you have to pay some price to get this advantage.


Weaving your domain classes with Fody

When I model the business domain with C#, the resulting data structures tend to contain a lot of boilerplate code. It's repeated from class to class and it gets more difficult to see the essence of the model behind the repetitive cruft. In this article I show off one trick to reduce this boilerplate code with Fody library.
