    Improvements for testing in VSTS 2008

    • 4 Comments
    Compared to our VSTS 2005 release, the 2008 release is a fairly modest release. Mostly it's filling gaps in the offering and adding in a few nice new features. However, I think the improvements we've made in testing are are under appreciated. IMHO, we...

    What are “Off-times”?

    • 7 Comments
    I got called out in email, I think reasonably appropriately, for using the term “off-times” when referring to choosing a better time to do our sprintly upgrades.  In a 24x7 continuous service world, there really is no such thing as a “good” time...

    Unified UserVoice site

    • 2 Comments
    It pretty quickly became clear that having separate Visual Studio and Visual Studio ALM sites just wasn't going to be a good idea. It just wasn't clear to people which site to post ideas in. As a result, we have combined the two under the Visual Studio...

    I'm going to jump out of character here and rant about something that really got under my skin today. Let me start by saying I'm not into politics all that much - I see both sides of too many issues to have overwhelmingly strong opinions. Further, I consider...
