Great article!

... If you start from the standpoint of someone who uses expression trees (and similar) all the time, and you want to Unlearn how to use them!

I mean, Jeeze!  Could they be any more obscure or multi-biguous?

And right from the get-go, too:
Quote:
An expression in Visual Basic and C# is a piece of code that returns a value when evaluated, for example:
42
"abcd"
True
n
In what universe are those "examples of pieces of code that return values when evaluated"?

If you haven't read the article, just imagine how confusing that kind of misrepresentation would be when explaining stuff that you don't know inside-out (so it isn't obvious to you what they really meant), and, well, just forget the idea of reading it.
I wanna be a eunuchs developer! Pass me a bread knife!
