I work in a language that is strongly and statically typed. I have been working with this language for a very long time. I am often envious of dynamic languages as they can more easily bend and mold to fit certain problems. Often I am faced with problems that seem like a great fit for these languages, but I often need my solution to fit and work with my existing solution and not contained in another project or application.

One of these is what my product owner likes to call ‘Flexible Attributes.’ This is almost a text book case of something that you don’t often do in static languages

  • add properties to your objects. But our team took the challenge on, and this is my attempt to document how we solved the problem using the C# language and building it on top of a relational database.
