Two topics I’d been asked to cover were tackled today.

Gunnar explains “How to Shoot Yourself in the Foot With Code Coverage”.  Some choice quotes that I have also found to be truisms:

To efficiently use any of this a time needs to be invested in training people, choosing proper metrics, explaining metrics to all team members, and picking key things to measure.

Whenever I read articles when somebody recommends that one should strive for 100% code coverage I want to start screaming.

Based on my experience getting more than 80% of code coverage gets extremely tricky and there’s very little in return for your investments.

Rido found, what he describes as, the best add-in and wrote a macro to go along with it for integrating NUNIT into VS.NET 2003.

Great Posts! Enjoy.
