Essential .NET for Enterprise Architects

One of the key features that necessitated the need for a .NET programming model was to rid ourselves from DLL hell. This was resolved by fundamentally changing how dependent assemblies are loaded. I think it critical for "Enterprise Architects" (especially ones who develop "frameworks" for everyone else to use) to understand How the Runtime Locates Assemblies. This knowledge is critical for "framework" developers to understand so they can appreciate that concepts such as binary compatibility become unnecessary with knowledge of How the Runtime Locates Assemblies and labeling/tagging/marking/attaching meta-information to your repository.

If you are designing .net applications that others use… please, please, please… understand this:
How the Runtime Locates Assemblies

And, if you don’t understand it, please read http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/yx7xezcf%28VS.71%29.aspx.

Thank you.
