The March 2005 issue of MSDN Magazine is now online, and it contains an article written by yours truly. The article is entitled Make the .NET World a Friendlier Place with the Many Faces of the CultureInfo Class and attempts to capture many of the possible uses of CultureInfo (and how to choose the correct one to use in a managed application).
It is interesting how the article came about. Stephen Toub is a man who tends to prove wrong the (unfair) conventional notion of an editor since he is pretty astute technically. Maybe this explains why his title is "Technical Lead" and not "Editor" although he does work for Joshua Trupin, the Executive Editor of MSDN Magazine (and the guy who I have written articles for in the past). Anyway, Stephen often answers technical questions internally on Microsoft aliases. He and I tend to cross paths a whole lot since we hang out on the same aliases. After a particular question I had answered we started talking about how it clear that the "which culture should I use?" question was pretty commonly asked, and that perhaps a short piece that would try to go through the various uses and how to pick the right one in each case could come in handy.
Before you knew it, there was an article. :-)
Anyway, there are several interesting topics that I have covered here in various ways and others that I have not (yet). Hope you enjoy....
