I have recently been reading up on Code Contracts, ala Contract By Design. It seems like a good idea, but I have yet to see Contract.Requires and Contract.Ensure in production code, for example, in TempHire or Cocktail.

Just wondering what your take on it is.

I haven't seen it used widely myself and personally I haven't really spent time on it. On the surface it does look like a good idea and might be something useful in particular for libraries such as Cocktail to check things at runtime and ensure the caller is using the APIs correctly.

More importantly than contracts are good unit tests, though, in my opinion.

OK, thanks Marcel.
