  • MyGet: Continuous Integration for the Rest of Us
    The process entails writing a build script that executes pack and push commands using the NuGet command line tool , which you can install using either a bootstrapper or Chocolatey. To get those packages, you need to add a NuGet package source pointing to the feed (in Visual Studio select Tools, Options, NuGet Package Manager, Package Sources). In addition you’ll need to go to Tools, Options, Debugging, General, then check “Enable source server support” and uncheck “Require source files to exactly match the original version” (which is needed because the checksums will differ).

  • Estimates or #NoEstimates? that is the question
    They are primarily a tool for teams to decide how much work to take on for the next couple of weeks. 'To estimate or not to estimate, to join the #NoEstimates bang-wagon or not, that is the question. Maybe it is a navel gazing exercise for agile-folk but it does seem to be the reoccurring theme. And I can’t get over this feeling that some of my peers think I’m a bit stupid for continuing to support estimates. Add my own #NoProjects / #BeyondProjects logic isn’t far removed from the whole estimates discussion. I’m sure Seb will correct me if my memory is fault.) Well here is that list.

  • Nightmare on Agile Street 2: Managed Agile
    Thats why they chose a new tool called Kjsb, its pragmatic too. This wonderful tool will fix everything. 'Blow me down, its happening again… I’m awake. m wet, its a cold sweat. Its the small hours of the morning and the dream is horrid. ve been sent to Coventry. m in a clients office waiting for a meeting to start. The development manager is telling me she has selected me to help them become Agile, she checked me out online and recognises that I am pragmatic. Pragmatic. God does she know how much I hate that word? Pragmatic to me? And even change the context. But pragmatic?

  • Book: Scaling up Excellence
    Rather than say: “I understand your concern, this is something we are working on and we need your help, we might need to change policy or find new ways or working” the executive replied: “With modern tools this isn’t such a big problem any more…” Immediately it seemed that not only did the banker not understand Agile and why Agile said this but he set out to show that as a banker he understood more about modern technology than the technologist asking the question (who was wrong.) 'In the early days of this blog I used to regular blog book reviews. but he looks specifically at scaling.

  • EF 6.x Code-First and Model-First with Trackable Entities 2.1
    'Until now Trackable Entities has required the Entity Framework Power Tools to reverse engineer Code-First model classes from an existing database. Tools for Visual Studio 2012 and 2013 , so that you can use the same Entity Data Model wizard to generate context and entity classes using either the Code First or Model first approaches. When the tools were first released, the ability to customize the T4 templates used for generating Code First classes was undocumented. These are identical to those generated for Code First using either the EF Power Tools or the EF 6.x

  • Allan Kelly: What we forget about the Scientific Method
    For example: Putting effective source code control and build systems in place Operating in two week iterations: planning out two weeks of work, reviewing what was done and repeating Putting up a team board and using it as a shared to-do list Creating basic measurement tools, whether they be burn-down charts, cumulative flow diagrams or even more basic measurements You get the idea? Too often the scientific approach is made to sound simple, it isn’t. First lets define the scientific method. Perhaps rather than call it “scientific method” it is better called “experimentation.” Pika pika

  • My Next Language
    Libraries & Tools :  A major benefit of a big community is access to lots of libraries and tools. Tools like IDEs, debuggers, and other nifty tools really help (like an interpreter!). 'I have a decent background in programming languages. In a professional context (i.e., for real money) I’ve used C#, Scheme (my favorite), Lisp, and C. For projects I’ve also used Java, C++, and Python. For tinkering around I’ve used Prolog, Haskell, OCaml, Factor and Javascript. I’ve studied many more, including Go, F#, Ruby, Scala, Clojure, and on and on.

  • How do I make testing faster?
    And please please please, don’t spend money on tool test tools. 'Earlier this week I was the guest of a large bank in the City, OK Canary Wharf actually. They had their own little internal Agile conference. As well as myself some of the usual suspects were on parade as well as some internal speakers. It was very enjoyable and as usual the C-List speakers were some of the most interesting. Later in the day I found myself in conversation with two people concerned about software testing. They posed the question: “How do we make testing faster?” The usual one is cost. Now the catch.

  • Test First vs Test After
    have the advantage of years of fluency and tools like approval tests. 'There has been a lot of talk lately about whether or not Test First is Dead. This is a complicated and tangled issue, so I want to simplify many aspects of this debate in this blog post to focus on a single aspect of TDD: time. So for this blog, let''s ignore the distinction between unit, integration, acceptance tests. I''ll lump them all together into a single box - ''tests''. Let''s focus on the speed aspects of Test First vs Test After. In this example, it took me 60 minutes to code a feature.

  • False Projects
    When we manage a piece of work as “a project” when it isn’t then at the very least we use the wrong language and tools. 'In my last post ( Inconvenient Truths of Project Status Reporting ) I used an expression which I think deserves highlighting and explaining: False Projects False projects occur when we use the word “project” for work which is not really a project. For example: There is no end date to the work, it goes on and on, rightly or wrongly. The team is not broken up, it goes on and on, rightly or wrongly, i.e. the team is not a temporary structure. Please, hear me out.
