  • Blog Post: Visual Studio Team Developer - Undocumented feature in Unit Testing

    During my whirl-wind tour of Whidbey I am taking the ride using VSTD (there is a joke ther somewhere <STD>). Coming from NUnit / TDD.net and VS 2003, I was used to dealing with configuration through the configuration file myassembly.dll.config. Now that I am using the tests from VS and looking...

In a current project that we are working on, we have invoked the power of Unit Testing and some parts of Test Driven Development...
  • Blog Post: Why Singletons are Evil

    While I did not write this, I totally agree with it. Brian Button is probably one of the most talented people I know, and I am sure he would love your feedback. 1) Singletons frequently are used to provide a global access point for some service. True, they do this, but at what cost? They provide a well...
