  • Blog Post: NCrunch + Debug.Print() = Almost a REPL

    I remember back in the mid-90's when I could launch a compile cycle on my C++ program and then go to lunch. It might be done by the time I returned. I'm sure that SOMEWHERE in the world there are still projects like that, but they're definitely not in the mainstream like they used to be. The days of...
  • Blog Post: AutoFakes Is Now Live at CodePlex

    After many years of just talk, I’ve finally released my first Open Source Software project at CodePlex, called AutoFakes . It’s meant for Visual Studio 11, though I suppose it would probably work in VS 10 if you have Pex/Moles installed, but definitely haven’t tested THAT. Basically...
  • Blog Post: Code-First Development with Entity Framework 4–Falling Into the Pit of Success

    I was excited to see StottGu’s blog regarding Code-First Development with Entity Framework 4 .  Personally, I don’t learn best by going through a step by step tutorial, however.  It’s like learning a song in another language by rote memory.  It may sound the same when I parrot it back...
  • Blog Post: Developer Default Build

    There are some things that I need on every box I build for development.  While it’s true that these things change somewhat over time, there are still some non-negotiable items. Visual Studio 2008 Team Suite + SP1 – there is no substitute Team Foundation Server – we’ve got it here at work and I don...
  • Blog Post: ReSharper – Crack for .NET Developers

    http://jetbrains.com – they hook you with a free 30-day copy, then you shell out the big bucks for it, and then you pay for upgrades almost yearly.  BUT I MUST HAVE IT!  Paying yet again.  Why oh why doesn’t Microsoft get a site-license for this?
  • Blog Post: Well, here I am!

    Ah... my first post on MSDN. Sorry that it's none too exciting, but that will probably change in the near future. As for now, I'm still "drinking from the firehose" here at Microsoft. The amount of information to soak in is tremendous. I've been hired by Microsoft Consulting Services, Public Sector...
  • Blog Post: Starting out with Agile

    (archived from my old blog from my pre-MS days) I heard recently on Hanselminutes ( 115, I think ) something to the effect of "Alt.NET has a lot to contribute, but the barrier to entry is pretty high." I know that didn't necessarily mean "agile" in particular, but perhaps that was...
  • Blog Post: Coding Blind

    (archived from my old blog from my pre-MS days) I remember a cartoon I saw in the early 90's regarding the way that software projects were sometimes run.  The punch line was, "You guys start coding, I'll go find out what they want."  The industry's answer to that was the onset of...
  • Blog Post: ReSharper 4.0 & LINQ

    (archived from my old blog from my pre-MS days) Unfortunately, as of today (2/28/08), the ReSharper 4.0 EAP still can't handle LINQ (or partial methods, apparently) .  However, I just can't give up ReSharper's refactoring capabilities and other goodness, so here's how you can disable the code analysis...
