How to write your unit tests to switch between NUnit and MSTest
On my current project I found it useful to use both NUnit and MsTest for unit testing. When using ReSharper for running unit tests, it just simply works better with NUnit, and on large scale projects NUnit tends to run faster. We would have just simply used NUnit for everything, but MSTest gave us a few bonuses out of the box that were hard to pass up. Namely code coverage (without having to shell out thousands of extra dollars for the privilege) and integrated tests into the build process. I’m one ......

Delegates 101
It doesn't seem like all that long ago I was trying to get my head around exactly what a delegate was. Honestly it wasn't that hard for me coming from a C++ background, since they were an awful lot like function pointers. But still, the concept was just a little different. In the interest of making your UI more responsive, it's a good idea to thread some of the more intense work that occurs in your application. As soon as you say "Threading", a lot of people blanch and go pale, but it's really not ......
