In 2010 Bill Wagner gave a series of C# Puzzlers presentations at a number of U.S. based user groups and CodeMash events.  All were put to the test with intermediate level developers who tried to break, workaround, and outsmart the code.  Bill's puzzlers were so well received, that he is now being regularly asked to present them.  With each talk he acquires more thought provoking range of questions for the audience. This series of videos addresses many of those puzzling questions.  The focus is on C# 4.0 and each Puzzler will take about 15-20 minutes. Each puzzle will show a reasonably small piece of code and then ask readers to guess what the code does. The author will show what the code does, and why many developers believe it would behave differently. Then, he'll discuss how you could write the code differently to accomplish the same result without the misconceptions.
