  • Tooling stack of testing Asp.MVC Views
    “Craftsmen know their tools” At last weeks Jim Counts did a session on Testing MVC Views with ApprovalTests. watch the video here ] While I am always happy to see more ApprovalTesting in the world, I was also impressed with the full tooling stack Jim used throughout the presentation. Don’t get me wrong, Jim still does a simple “Hello World” type demo, but he applies all the rigor and professionalism I would want in a real project to that example. Nicely done Jim, you’ve inspired me to raise my game, and hopefully others as well. Asp.MVC Asp.Net C

  • Allan Kelly: Software supply & demand - this time its Agile
    'Carrying on from my previous posts applying the economists tools to thinking about software development ( Supply & Demand in software development and Software supply over time ). While Agile tools promise increased performance this is only in the long run. In the short run we can expect teams to slow down as they adopt these tools. Staying with the supply curve, consider again the tools we were looking at: Short iterations and regular releases make it cheaper to make small changes. In this post I want to see what happens when we apply Agile. Now there is a catch.

  • Brock Allen: Introducing Thinktecture IdentityManager
    'Back in 2005 when Microsoft released the ASP.NET MembershipProvider API, they also included in Visual Studio the ASP.NET WebSite Administration tool. Given Microsoft’s move away from Membership, this tool was removed from Visual Studio and many developers have missed [… This was used by developers to quickly create and edit users to populate the MembershipProvider database.

  • Using Reporters in Approval Tests
    The DiffReporter is most often used for this, because you can just right click in your particular differencing tool (TortoiseMerge is shown above, BeyondCompare, WinMerge or KDiff can also be used) and approve the output ‘approve whole file’. Rather than launching the output in any tool, this reporter creates the command-line output needed so that you can move the results file to the approved file quickly. Today I pushed new versions of ApprovalTests for both C# and Java to SourceForge. Updates include new capabilities around the Reporters feature set for ApprovalTests. png, *.html,

  • Entity Framework 5 + Enumerations => What’s not to love?
    and choose “Run Custom Tool” in order for the T4 template to regenerate the classes. Entity Framework 5 now supports enumerations (when using Visual Studio 2012 and targeting the.NET 4.5 framework). So let’s have a look. We’ll create a table called Planet with a name and a field to indicate whether it is habitable. CREATE TABLE [dbo].[Planets]( Note: the data type for ‘Habitable’ is a smallint. Next we’ll generate an entity data model from the database. Nothing exciting, since our database has just one table. In order to so, we need to update the model with information about the enum.

  • Roll Your Own REST-ful WCF Router
    WCF will give you all the tools you need to write a scalable, high-performance router with a minimal amount of code. Download the code for this post here. Recently I’ve been tasked with building a WCF routing service and faced the choice of whether to go with the built-in router that ships with WCF 4.0 , or to build one from scratch. The built-in router is great for a lot of different scenarios – it provides content-based routing, multicasting, protocol bridging, and failover-based routing. This is a very important requirement for performance and scalability. null ) { bool ? Enjoy.

  • Retrospective Dialogue Sheets: feedback & updates 1 of 2
    The short answer is No, because they are PDFs its kind of difficult - although I’m sure you could with the right tools. Every couple of months I e-mail everyone who has downloaded one or more of my Dialogue Sheets to get some feedback. Getting feedback is why I make people register to download a Dialogue Sheet - sorry, I know some people don’t like doing this, and I know some people fake their e-mail addresses but unless I do this I get very little feedback. This is the first of two post on this subject, the second post will examine a few findings in more depth.

  • The Prototype of Future Knowledge Workers
    The key difference between software knowledge workers and the others is that other knowledge workers can only use the tools that exist. If a tool doesn’t exist, they can’t use it. Conversely, software developers have the means to create any tool they can imagine. This doesn’t mean that non-programmers can’t invent electronic tools. Others can invent tools, but for programmers the barriers between imagining a tool and creating the tool are far lower. Lower barriers mean that programmers create many more tools than other types of worker.

  • Software Developmers: prototype of future knowledge workers?
    Software developers are able to create new tools for machines which allow them to change the way they do knowledge work. Lets be clear: Unlike other knowledge workers software developers have the ability to create new tools which can change their work. Software developers have early, if not first, access to tools which benefit knowledge work. One might also add that people working with technology welcome and embrace new tools and technologies (on the whole) so the barriers for technology change are lower. Our tools changed which allowed - even forced?

  • Programmers without TDD will be unemployable by 2022 (a prediction)
    Broadly speaking the same skills and similar tools are involved although there are significant differences, i.e. if you don’t have the ability to do TDD you can’t do BDD, but there is more to BDD than to TDD. Finally, debuggers are going to be less important, good use of TDD removes most of the need for a debugger (thats where the time comes from), which means IDEs will be less important, which means the developers tool market is going to change 'New year is traditionally the time of predictions, and several of the blogs I read have been engaging in predictions (e.g.

  • Does anyone actually use Quick Test Pro etc.?
    Those who talk about automated testing buy tools like Quick Test Pro, WinRunner and Quality Centre and Rational Test Workbench, Rational Quality Manager, i.e. expensive products from the likes of HP and IBM. Those who do automated testing use tools like Selenium , Fit & Fitnesse , Cucumber (inc. In addition: I just don’t think these tools are any good. To be fair, I’m no expert on testing tools but I’ve seen Quality Centre in action. Quality Centre (QC) isn’t an automated testing tool, its a very expensive test tracker. Gerkin, RSpec, etc.)
