Job Interviews: BizTalk Questions
On a more technical note, these are some of the questions I generally ask when interviewing someone for BizTalk. They are pretty general because the goal was to find out their knowledge of BizTalk in general, not to check if they knew all the gory details. General BizTalk Questions Explain general architecture of BizTalk (components, interaction of this components, etc) What design-pattern does BizTalk implement? Is the communication/messaging system in BizTalk is synchronous or asynchronous? What ......

Job Interviews: Relax, please!
Most of my experience with job interviews has been as the interviewed but lately there were two occasions where I was the interviewer. Together with a colleague we had to check the technical knowledge of several people applying for a position not directly in our company but for which we have to provide the candidates. Our role was to test the person's knowledge on BizTalk and SQL Server (BizTalk being my subject). I realized several things: I totally empathize with the person and want them so much ......

Class Code Coverage in TFS Warehouse
It turns out that the TFS Warehouse cube does not store code coverage data down to the class or method level. You can retrieve the data at the assembly level only (from the Assembly dimension).

I searched for information on this everywhere without much success. In the end I found someone mentioning this here.

MSF: track, workstreams, activities, areas and iterations
During the past week I have been busy creating a Team System process template to be used by the MSFT Development group where I work. While discussing this topic with my boss and showing him how the MSF for CMMI work items look like, he asked that I add a field to indicate the current track, workstream and activity. To be more precise, he asked me to use the "Area path" field for workstreams and activities, and to add an extra field to specify the track. I proceeded with these changes (yes, a bit ......

TF26204: The account you entered is not recognized.
As I was trying to import a work item definition into a team project (using the Process Template Editor from gotdotnet) I received the following error message: TF26204: The account you entered is not recognized. Contact your Team Foundation Server administrator to add your account.. But I had not done any security changes (adding account or groups or permissions). What was it taking about? Then I understood: I had added a field that contained backslashes as values and TFS interpreted it as user account! ......

Comparing NUnit to Team System Unit Testing
This post is quite old (one year) but still useful since it outlines the main differences between NUnit and Team System tests in terms of attributes and assertions. A good summary.

TF26214: Cannot save the work item. Fields with errors: Track,Estimate
Today I was creating a new process template for my company developers when I had a strange problem. I already had a few projects created with a previous version of this template (mytemplate v2.0). The new version (mytemplate v3.0) mainly includes changes in work item types. In order to apply the new version to the already created team projects I imported the new versions of the work items. That worked fine. Then I created a team project with the mytemplate v3.0 and ... error! Module: Work Item TrackingEvent ......
