A nice group of people to work with… The team The team is made up of experts from Microsoft and Microsoft Most Valuable Professionals (MVP), including Randy Miller, Edward Bakker, Francisco Xavier Fagas Albarracín, Clemens Reijnen, Clementino de Mendonca and Marcel de Vries. On Monday we are kicking off the refresh of the Visual Studio Architecture Tooling Guidance (http://vsarchitectureguide.codeplex.com/). No fixed delivery milestones are defined or even considered, instead the team will trickle publish refreshments as they become available, to ensure that the guidance is constantly updated. see Willy’s post for more details Call for action If you are a subject matter ...

Op de .NET Magazine site staat een artikel van Edward en mij over het VS2010 Modeling Feature Pack Bij de ontwikkeling van Visual Studio 2010 heeft Microsoft veel aandacht besteed aan Extensibility. Enerzijds om het mogelijk te maken zelf nieuwe features toe te voegen aan Visual Studio 2010 en anderzijds om het voor de gebruiker eenvoudiger te maken zelf uitbreidingen te ontwikkelen. Dit artikel geeft een introductie van het 'Visualization and Modeling Feature Pack' en de 'Feature Builder Power Tool'. Beide goede voorbeelden van wat er met het Extensibility platform van Visual Studio 2010 kan worden bereikt. Jaargang: 2010 Editie: 3 Auteur: E. Bakke... [More]

Often the testing effort in an agile environment is called ‘Agile Testing’. This sounds a bit strange, it almost looks like testing is a separate thing, something special, something you can do or don’t in agile projects. But, testing is nothing more or less a part of the process. Tasks covering testing activities are executed during a sprint, are planned during a sprint planning meeting and have to follow the basic rules of Scrum. The Visual Studio 2010 Scrum Process Template support agile work, but when teams think about testing as a separate effort, success is far away even when adopting the Scrum Process Template. So, testing practices like those in the TMap Test Approach need to be emb... [More]

It is still a bit complicated, or better a bit confusing, how the different parts within Microsoft Test Manager are organized. This post is a try to clear things a bit [mostly for myself ]… please respond if I made a mistake! On MSDN this image is shown to explain the organization of test artifacts, but this is a simplification, the reality is a bit more sophisticated and complex. For example test cases can exist in different suites, plans and even different team projects. A different view… And again, correct me if I’m wrong… See image below; a project collection has multiple team projects and a team project only can live in one project collection. A test pl... [More]

This article discusses the creation and maintenance of consistent, correct, and communicative software architecture by using Microsoft Visual Studio 2010. Setting up, validating, and maintaining consistent, correct, and communicative software architecture in its context and interaction with its environment is no trivial task. A new architecture needs to be created. But how do you know if this architecture is good? Covering all areas, dealing with all the requirements and quality attributes is difficult; but forgetting to discuss one or more is easy and will leave space for assumptions. Because of changing requirements, your architecture needs to be changed. But how do you know if it i... [More]
