Newsflash

Sometimes I’m reading up on my subscribed weblogs and just see so much that I want to share. Inspired by Peter Provost his Geek Notes, this might be a repeatable feature.

  • Waterfall 2006
    This is the place to be. Forget about Agile 2006, let’s all meet at Waterfall 2006. At the website, don’t forget to read the session names and the first paragraph after the sessions.  []
  • Code Coverage in TestDriven.NET
    The tool once called NUnitAddin, now supports code coverage. Unfortunatly only in the Team Editions of VS2005, probably because it’s already there in some form. Let’s hope it’s maker, Jamie Cansdale, can also support it in other versions of VS2005. Perhaps those nice little green and red icons that VS2005 has in its VSTT can also be added in VS2005 through TestDriven.NET 🙂 []
  • Since a while I’m digging myself into both MSF 3 and MSF Agile. Via David Anderson I’m reading that MSF practitioners/trainers Andy Delin and Clementino Mendonca are also blogging. Let’s see what they have to say, subscribed.
  • And after reading Clementino his weblog, what do I see? Turbo Pascal 5.5 as a free ‘antique software’ download at the Borland website! Is that cool or what?! 🙂
  • In one of my latest posts about WIndows Workflow, I replied to a comment poster that the WF and WCF Go Live licenses are out. Now you’ve read it here also.
  • Service Orientation, what it is not.
    First, Steve Swartz kicked in some doors with his Channel 9 video. Richard Turner agrees with him and adds some more comments. Especially the Service Orientation != Service Oriented Architecture statement can be confusing. Remember who said we should say SO/A? While everyone is trying to solve problems with all these technologies, methodologies, patterns and much much more, It’s getting more and more confusing. 😉

    I remember the good old days when I started to code my first spaghetti application in Turbo pascal.

    Turbo Pascal.. damn that’s a long time ago 🙂 I have good memories developing our cool applications as our school assignments. We were definately ahead of our class back then. It was pretty cool that you could do inline assembler too and remember that we made some sort of G-Force intro :). Too bad I lost all that code when my computer fell out of that van 🙁

  3. Hahahahaha, that was indeed cool… I’ve got some old HD’s laying around, perhaps there’s some code on one of them.

    I still remember exactly the pointer assignment I got from Klaverweide. That asshole! Giving me a 1 because it crashed on his machine, whereas I had warned him and given a thousand warnings throughout the program that it could do this if your computer did not support something, I build in. He told me in advance he had a 80386, which I was sure of it would work on. Seemed his home-pc was MUCH older.

    The pc’s at school worked like a charm with my app. It was one of the most beautiful apps I ever build.

  4. Hi Dennis,

    I’m happy to say code coverage is now available in *all* versions of Visual Studio. There is now integration with NCover and NCoverExplorer.

    More details here:

    Have fun, Jamie.

  5. Cool mate! Excellent!

    And nCoverExplorer, does it already work with Team Editions of VS2005? Because it’s really cool tho have code-coverage available in another app/window when I’m creating my unit tests.

  6. Don’t have money to buy a building? You should not worry, just because it’s available to take the loan to resolve such kind of problems. Therefore get a credit loan to buy all you require.
