Testing in the Application Lifecycle with Visual Studio 2010 Test Edition

a translated version of an article Rob and I wrote for the Dutch .NET Magazine. Visual Studio Test Edition will be significantly extended in the upcoming version [2010]. Next to support for developers and testers this version will also support user / acceptance testers. With these features the upcoming version of Visual Studio will cover the testing spectrum completely. Introduction Everyone knows that testing is an important part in the development of software and it is quite unusual for the testing department to be completely separated from the departments that develop software. This separation of worlds is not only physical, but also present in the area of tooling. Cooperation is hard ... [More]

Forrester Case Study: Microsoft Speeds Tool Delivery With Agile Development

Nice reading from Forrester about VSTS 2010 Team Architect product developement… Microsoft's TeamArch, which is responsible for the Visual Studio Team System 2010 Architect product, faced multiple challenges that interfered with its ability to rapidly deliver a plug-in tool with the right capabilities. Some of the challenges included fuzzy requirements, a large development organization, and widely varied target customers. How did the team respond? It transformed the way it worked, introducing tighter customer relationships, Agile development practices, and more-transparent stakeholder communication. These changes, coupled with an almost manic focus on delivery, enabled the team to cha... [More]

Application Lifecycle Management for SharePoint

Top Business Risks and Top Project Failures with SharePoint explained. The Reason for Application Lifecycle Management. Most people think that SharePoint is something really special and that you need to have a really advanced development lifecycle, operational environment and management, because you can do enormous amount things with it [see image below]. But, when you take a look at SharePoint, it is actually narrower scoped than plain old application development with C# or other development language. I think we still can make a Marslander based on SharePoint, but let’s stay realistic. With any kind of development language you can build applications which facilitate collaborati... [More]

Dutch Open Space Code Day 2009

Open space code is an hands-on programming event following the open space format. The concept was stolen (with permission) from http://openspacecode.com/uk/london/2009-01-31.xhtml.

Application Lifecycle Management and a Collaborative Culture.

I had some interesting discussion last week about working together and ALM, based on what I wrote in this post Visual Studio Team System 2010 – Episode 3: The Lifecycle; Tools can help with this goal. Having gear in place which supports and stimulates collaboration is a driver for a successful Application Lifecycle Management. But without a plan, how people should collaborate and communicate, tools are useless. Now I’m not a Team Dynamics nor a behavioral specialist. But, I did some investigation according these topics past year for the Cloud Collaboration Book we have written. A big word in the Book TagCloud is ‘Collaboration’ [made by wordle.net]   So, I thought [also as a... [More]
