No Option Strict For You

I’m looking at sample apps for some newer .Net web developers to learn from . . . I figured the ASP.Net starter kits would be a good place to start.  One of the things we wanted to include was the importance of Option Strict On vs Option Strict Off and wouldn’t you know it: the TimeTracker Starter Kit app doesn’t use Option Strict On.  I guess I shouldn’t consider a “starter kit” to be the same as a best-practice “reference application” but it would be better for everyone if these sorts of samples stuck to some fundamentals.  Oh well . . . I can use this as an exercise in why they aren’t using Option Strict On and how we can correct it


I won’t even go into what happens when I run FxCop against the starter kit.
