I’ve noticed lots of questions from the developer community with the release of “Shared Projects” inside of Visual Studio 2015. In this video, I aim to clear up any confusion regarding “Shared Projects” vs. Class Libraries.
For those looking for a quick breakdown:
A class library is compiled and the unit of reuse is the assembly.
In a Shared Project, the unit of reuse is the source code and the shared code is incorporated into each assembly that references the shared project.
I hope this clears things up and don’t forget to email me any question that you would like answered at firstname.lastname@example.org.
