Booch & Pierson on Domain Specific-Languages

Grady Booch recently posted a skeptical commentary (Domain-specific Languages) on domain-specific languages. Harry Pierson responds with a post that offers an alternative perspective (By Request: My Response To Booch's Doubts).

OOPSLA

Harry Pierson also blogs about the DSL tutorial Jack Greenfield, Keith Short, Steve Cook and Stuart Kent presented at OOPSLA on Monday (OOPSLA DSL Tutorial). Harry also has a post that sums up the rest of his Monday experience at OOPSLA (OOPSLA Day 0). Tuesday is the first day for invited speakers, including keynotes from Microsoft's Rick Rashid, Ward Cunningham and Herb Sutter. More to come...

Software Roaches

Ishai Ben Aroya has a post (Bugs that hide from debuggers) that explains how some bugs are able to hide from the debugger when it unwittingly prevents the bug from occurring.

Also, be sure to watch these Channel 9 videos (Alex Kipman - Inside a MS Build Bug Triage meeting and Chad Royal - What gets into the bug database?) that shed some light on bug management here at Microsoft.

If you can't wait for a future release of Team System to debug unit tests, you may want to read about a workaround from reidm (How to step through test cases executing with Whidbey's test runner).

Cloak & Dagger

Okay, no dagger, but for those that are familiar with SourceSafe's cloaking feature, Korby Parnell blogs (Team Foundation vs. SourceSafe | Cloaking) about a similar capability in Team Foundation version control that blocks certain folders from recursive gets.
