**this year I had the pleasure of cramming the following information into my lobes:**

**Book: Schuams Graph Theory **- http://www.amazon.com/Schaums-Outline-Graph-Theory-Including/dp/0070054894/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1282769287&sr=1-6 - a subset of combinatorics. From my perspective, just use linear algebra - you can bash anything into vectors. some interesting stuff on platonic solids and the 3 color world map.

- SD - shortest distance
- SP - shortest path
- bipartite graph - 2 disjoint sets of vertices where every edge connects a vertix in U to a vertex in V
- Hamiltonian path - passes through every node
- Isomorphism - 1to1 correspondence of node connections between graphs
- spanning tree of a graph - an acyclic connected spanning subgraph - if it exists
- stiener tree -the optimal spanning tree
- K - the connectivity number of a graph - the minimum size of a seperating set
- K3,3 - the complete bipartate graph - evry vertex of the 1st set is connected to every vertex of the 2nd
- Carpe Diem - 'sieze the day' - the tramp stamp on the back of the girl who sat next to me on the Sherut while I read this tome.

**Schaums Discrete Maths **- http://www.amazon.com/Schaums-Outline-Discrete-Mathematics-Revised/dp/0071615865/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1282768016&sr=1-1- relatively basic until you get into:

__Algebraic systems__(semigroups, groups, rings and fields) in terms of homomorphisms (mappings between them - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Homomorphism) and operations__Languages, grammers and machines__- formalizes the notion of IPO machines and computable functions. (__think the M language from the Oslo vaporware__).__Covers deep com sci foundational concepts__: regular expressions, finite__state automata__,__languages__(all paths through an automaton where the final state is an accepting state),__grammers__(eg MGrammer!) (Chomsky classified these),__Finite State Machines__(FSAs whose input and output languages are distinct), and finally turing machines (think ticker tapes).- some stuff on modulo clocks

**Visual Studio Templates - **create project / item templates + wizards for populating them - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/6db0hwky(VS.80).aspx

**PI AB** - Policy Injection Application Block - http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ff647463.aspx - fake AOP via proxy interception

Visualization + Calssification --> conceptualization

**Automapper **- http://automapper.codeplex.com/ - __A C# DTO class generator __--> AutoMapper uses a fluent configuration API to define an object-object mapping strategy. AutoMapper uses a convention-based matching algorithm to match up source to destination values. Currently, AutoMapper is geared towards model projection scenarios to flatten complex object models to DTOs and other simple objects, whose design is better suited for serialization, communication, messaging, or simply an anti-corruption layer between the domain and application layer.

**Book: Is God a mathematician **. more of a history of mathematics revealing the abyss: infinity, non-euclidean geometry,Cantor's countability (different levels of ininity), Godels incompleteness theorum, and the halting state. There but for the grace of Eulers formula, go I.

build custome extensions - **tools** (Visual Studio automation), **code** (your sample code or binaries you wish to share with others) and a **map** (a set of steps your users will want to follow to get the best experience with your extension). You can use this power tool to quickly package up sample code with documentation, custom menus, or take the time to create complete automated guidance . You can share your extension with users by distributing a .vsix file, or posting to the Visual Studio Gallery.Create modeling and visualization tools to provide a logical view of your target solution, and to visualize your existing code.
