Code Snippet - The Stopwatch Class as a Tool

There are some really cool tools available to help you test and improve your programs in the.Net Framework.

One of the most simple is the Stopwatch class, situated in the System.Diagnostics namespace. As the name suggests it allows you to create a stopwatch object, and use it to time processes, operations or any other part of your program.

Code Snippet - Smallest Number Divisible by 1-20

Code Snippet - Smallest Number Divisible by 1-20

This algorithm will calculate the lowest number that is evenly divisible by all of the numbers from 1-20. This is one of the Project Euler problems (ProjectEuler.net), which i have recently taken to playing with. I really enjoy thinking in a completely different way to my day job, and this is a great place to do that. Check it out below.

The code uses a do-while loop to increase the number to be tested from 1 to as high as is needed to allow the number to be divisable by 20 and all numbers below.

Code Snippet - Printing a Binary Triangle

This little code snippet comes directly from a 'code challenge' I completed on Programr.com and I found it really interesting so decided to put it up here.

The challenge was to create a binary triangle of a size determined by the user. So the program collected user input for the number of rows and then printed a binary triangle to the console output in the format given in the challenge spec below. The method shown here does not include gathering the user input.
