Now that technology is integrating so fully with our day-to-day lives, the concept of backing up data is more and more commonplace.  People backup their phones with iCloud or Google Cloud.  People use cloud file sharing services to have another copy of their pictures, documents, music and other personal data.  Personal computer cloud backup services like Mozy and Carbonite are well-established brands.  These trends are for very good reason—it’s a fact that data loss isn’t a matter of if, it’s a matter of when.  That’s why in any conversation about data backups, it is often said that if data doesn’t exist in at least two places, it may as well not exist.  These solutions exist for that reason, and because the explosion of tech users over the last decade has coincided with an explosion in the need for backups.

LINQ's Single Method: When and Why It's a Good Idea

Posted by Kris Coleman on May 31, 2017 11:00:00 AM

Recently I’ve come to a realization: I use Single() and SingleOrDefault() frequently even though many developers avoid it entirely – instead always opting to use First() or FirstOrDefault(). I wanted to explain why I explicitly choose Single over First in certain situations. Under most circumstances, Single() provides a better a means of validating the intent of your LINQ, therefore helping to validate your program as a whole.
