Day 71: Static

As I mentioned yesterday, something else ‘clicks’ with every iteration of a different C# tutorial.  That’s my programming learning style: I need to read various definitions and type out different examples for it to sink in (or maybe I’m just a slow learner…)

Although it hasn’t quite ‘clicked’ yet, the fuzzy picture surrounding the static keyword is beginning to sharpen:

  • There are static classes and members
  • A static member is a member of the class, not a member of an instance of the class
  • Static does not mean “cannot be changed”
  • A static class is directly accessible by its name, can’t be instantiated, can’t be inherited (sealed)

Current Progress Status

  • Tower Defense Tutorial: 65/73
  • The Art of Game Design by Jesse Schell (pg 387/518)
  • C# The Yellow Book (pg 113/216)
