Visual Studio Team System 2010 – Episode 1: A Focus on Testing
Visual Studio Team System 2010 – Episode 2: No Risk No Test
In the last episode Rob talked about the main challenges of testing, and not only for the acceptance tester but all the roles who are responsible for the quality of the product and that's actually everybody.
No Risk- No Test… what needs to be tested, when there is no business risk there is no reason to test, no reason to make unit tests by the developer, no reason to make regression tests and no reason to do acceptance testing. But when there is a risk every role has the goal of making that... [More]

[A like this picture of different types of stakeholders, from the change management toolbox ]
Communication, Keep it simple.
The most important thing you have... [More]
Installed Windows 7 Beta 1 this morning just before ice skating in my backyard. [click to zoom, the pushpin is where I live at the water and now at the ice… really great, see also picture below] [Vicky and Abel] Actually I upgraded the 6801 PDC version to the 7000 version [no problems with that]. But because I don’t have a DVD writer and no ISO reading tool I used the workaround I did many times and just because I haven’t seen any post about it [and I wanted to show some skating pictures] I thought let’s post it. What did I do to install the Windows 7 ISO image, the steps are very easy. I do think everybody nowadays have Virtual PC installed, if not… think ... [More]

The VSTA Layer Diagram and the P^P App Arch Guide 2.0.
Blueprints: Visual Studio 2010 CTP
In this step as promised in part 1 ‘Create Diagrams from Code’.
I used VSTemplate and the IWizard interface for the first solution, but now we have the Blueprints available in VSTS2010 we better can use that functionality to create the diagrams. For this post it actually doesn’t matter what you use as long as you can access the Visual Studio automation object model [DTE].
