  • Blog Post: ARC 206 - Evolving to Patterns at TechEd

    I will be in Boston for TechEd in June to present a talk about design patterns and (IMO) how best to use them in your everyday development. In the past I have found design patterns talks less than inspiring. They tend to be just a presentation of a catalog. The approach that I take this time is to talk...
  • Blog Post: CodePlex.com Beta

    Over 13 months ago (April 4, 2005 in fact) I posted something on my blog that I was leaving the patterns & practices team.

The early versions worked on single files...
  • Blog Post: NUnit Converter V0.3

    There is a new version (0.3) of the converter in the GotDotNet workspace. Click here to download. This version adds support for VB.NET and fixes a few bugs that I discovered as I did more extensive acceptance testing. I have done much more acceptance testing with C# conversion because I have a lot...
  • Blog Post: NUnit Tests and Visual Studio 2005 Team System

    In addition to GotDotNet workspaces V2 I have been busy on the testing front. A number of customers have started looking at the new testing tool in Visual Studio 2005 Team System. One of the first questions that comes to mind is what am I going to do with the tests I’ve written in NUnit. Well, I have...

    I will be in Orlando next week (June 6-10, 2005). I have been working on a number of things, blogging not being one of them, but I am sure given my lack of posts you already know this.
