Customize your TFS Template
One of the questions that came out of my TFS talk at the Magenic Technology Summit was: How do you go about customizing one of the existing templates provided for TFS, such as MSF Agile? We may want to add new types for Work Items, for example, or add new states that work items can be in. The easiest way to do this is through the Visual Studio Team System 2008 Team Foundation Server Power Tools. If you do not have the Power Tools installed, you can still do this by editing the XML that makes up the ......

Magenic Technology Summit in the Rear View Mirror
The Magenic Technology Summit has come and gone. It was a great event with many good sessions and lots of networking. I spoke on TFS, and it was a good session. It was way too short though! I was tagged to give an over-view 100-level "what is TFS", and found that after walking through the slide deck, there wasn't time for hardly any of my cool demos. I am looking forward to the talks where I can walk-through more demos. Catch me at: Chicago Day of Dot Net: Sept 6 Twin Cities Code Camp: Oct 11 Iowa ......

You may be a geek if...
You know that Fibonacci is not a fine wine or type of bread. Your Christmas list is a color-coded spreadsheet with sort capabilities on person, store, and price. The last party you attended was a slide deck check. Your MP3 player contains more .NET podcasts than music. The average shelf life of the books you purchase is 3 months. You have more email addresses than you have digits in your phone number. That's ok, because you have linked them all together with single sign-on from your smart phone. ......

How I got Started in Programming : Software Development Meme
Mike Eaton, a member of my twitter tribe, is trying to get to know his tweeps better. As part of that, he asks a few questions to get a better understanding of our background. I figured that rather than answer in his comments, I'll post it here instead. Then, I got tagged by Jeff Brand... So the pressure was on!! How old were you when you started programming? Ten years old the first time. 23 the second time. How did you get started in programming? My parents bought a Commodore Vic 20 (they couldn't ......

Visual Studio Team System: How to set a breakpoint and debug a Test
There are many ways to run a test in VSTS: From the Test View window, from the Test List window, and from the Test Results window, to name a few. VSTS then runs the test in the IIS or the ASP.NET Development Server Process. But what if you want to step through a test? How do you set a breakpoint? Microsoft has documented the "official" answer here: However, I have found a much simpler way to accomplish this: Run your tests from within Visual Studio runtime. To do this, rather than running your tests ......
