I'm sure a lot of us are in the situation where, if we aren't doing .Net related projects already, we might soon be.
In your experience, to what extent do you think the principles for crafting robust Java applications you discuss in your book are also applicable to writing good, solid C# or VB.Net applications, too?

Good question! There are indeed parts of "Robust Java" that I feel would be applicable to the broader work of developing robust enterprise software. Specifically, I've spent some effort elaborating good practices and key considerations in a few chapters in the book. It seems as though the following topics from the book all have more universal applicability:
best (and worst) practices for handling exceptions
That said, all of the example code in the book is written in Java, and I don't specifically focus on other languages, technologies and frameworks. I suspect you'd have to do some filtering to gather more general recommendations for the .NET framework while reading the book.
