Visual Studio Team System

  • Dave Bost is getting ready to take on the challenge of installing Visual Studio 2005 Beta 1 Refresh with Visual Studio Team System: “Ever since last May, when Microsoft announced Team System to the world at Tech Ed 2004, I've had a keen interest in poking around in this new application (and process guidance) suite.  As I write this, I've started down the arduous (according to conversations taking place here) path of getting Team System up and running.  I'm armed with my copy of the Oct/Nov MSDN Events DVD-ROM, with the Beta1 Refresh of Visual Studio + Team System, and I'm ready to roll.” – Dave Bost (Focusing on Team System)
  • Of course, he should go read this post from Saravana: “Read and follow each and every step mentioned in Microsoft Visual Studio® 2005 Team Foundation Server Installation Guide.” – Saravana (Ten things to know before starting VSTS Foundation Server Installation)
  • This traces back to a post I linked to back in June, but it has generated interest again: “My friend Andrew Stopford has been investigating the current status of tools for doing Test Driven Development (TDD) and Extreme Programming (XP), including catching up on the latest information on Team System.” – Robert Hurlbut (XP, TDD, NUnit, MbUnit, NAnt, Code Coverage, Team System, oh my)
  • Curious about Whitehorse? See this post from John Evdemon: “Whitehorse and Yukon are product code names for the graphical designer in Visual Studio 2005 and SQL Server 2005.  Today I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Whitehorse, Yukon is a real city.” – John Evdemon (On product code names...)
  • John also has a great post in which he shares his thoughts on SOA: “SOA is like that old fable from India about the blind men and the elephant - everyone describes it a bit differently…” – John Evdemon (Some thoughts on SOA)

Software Factories

Domain Specific Languages

  • When multiple disciplines get together to work through a problem, “…it is a problem of translating from one language to another.  That’s the basic problem we have to understand and solve.” – Steve Cook (Language Gaps)
