I just got a nice letter from Microsoft letting me know I got awarded as MVP for the 3rd year in a row. I feel really good about last year and all the stuff I did for the community. I'll try to do as much this year again. I love meeting new people and helping them network or solve their problem (If I can ;-)). Looking forward to talking (virtually) to some of you tomorrow in the Webcast, this autumn at the code camp and devteach and throughout next year. Thanks Microsoft for the 3rd vote of confidence. ......

This is a great news, TeamPlain are the leader in Team System web access as a group (MVPs and influencer) we told Microsoft "if you are going to provide web access to TFS, make it better then TeamPlain of buy them", looks like the listen to us ;-). What is also great about this news is they will be able to spend more cycle on new features in TFS and just gain a whole web access platform which is good for everyone. Nice move Microsoft read all about it here on Brian's blog. Cheers, ET ......

Hey everyone, Just noticed my good friend Steven Borg from Accentient posted my TFS Install Scripts (Oct 05). You can get them directly here. The TFS install scripts are scripts I put together to automate as much as possible of the pre-requirement application installations TFS requires; IIS, SQL Server, Windows SharePoint Services 2.0, Service packs, TFS users (Service, report, setup). I hope this helps you install your own TFS with the least amount of work. TFS installation can hard, so I hope those ......

16:30 EST – Day 22, On the plane again after 27h shore leave home. My bags didn’t make it from New York to Montreal but I got them at 9pm yesterday just in time to do some washing and repacking. I’m now on the way to Kokomo Indiana (I know less exotic than New-Zealand and Argentina but I’m sure the people there will be as great as everywhere else). This will be my 3rd stop and the 4th for Sandman and Chief. I think I’m back to the correct time zone (in my body anyway) ......

My two presentation went very well. I’m very happy with the turnout and add a good time with the attendees. What a feeling it is to sit with the likes of Julia Lerman, Kate Gregory, Barry Gervin, Joel Semeniuk, Richard Cambell, Kathleen Dollard, and many many others (51 in total). My talk on Adopting Team System went a bit over since I answered questions during the talk. That’s what I enjoy the most talking with attendees about real problems they are facing and decisions they need to ......

So I will try to post as much as possible about my experience in 4 continents and 7 countries not counting the airports in transit countries. So here is a quick break down of my next 2 1/2 months First New-Zealand land of the hobbits and home to our first stop on the WWT2K6 (World Wide Tour 2006) Next Brazil, followed by Kokomo Indiana (where I will amongst other things give a live MSDN webcast). Following Kokomo, I will go to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada and then TechED in Boston. Upon my return from ......

We are ......

Hey it's been a while but I've been busy circling the globe, first the UK, then the launch in San Francisco... I want you to want me... oh what memories hearing cheap trick play that song...Then back to my home base Montreal for a week, then on to New York for the launch there as well. I was manning our boot at both those launch and also did ask the experts in both cities.Today I went to the launch in Montreal it was very interesting getting to talk with the local guys here... and to speak in my ......

I have been working on a scripted install of Team System for a few weeks now on and off, I was using Notepad++ to edit vbs files and my hta controller app. With the release of Visual Studio 2005 I installed it on my host laptop (It's the first time I install it on my host machine I have been using VMs for the last 2 years). Well I know a lot about VS and have developed with it for a while now. So what was not my surprise when I opened vbs file with VS2K5 and it colored all my vbscript code and even ......

I was just reading Marc Lehmann post on Code Coverage and I agree with him that a single pass through your code will give you 100% coverage but it doesn't mean you extensively tested the boundaries of your code. So with this in mind, I'll show you how to setup a link to a database where you can use a table to feed your unit test with all the test cases you need to fully test you code. The unit testing framework of Team System lets you connect to a table and run the same test once for each row in ......

Well this is not really a scoop since it's been blogged about a lot in the last 24 hours by Sam Gentile here Jeff Beehler here and Eric Lee here... but since it's my first post on Geekswithblogs I wanted to let everyone know what my interests where. I love development in .NET. The platform is so empowering its incredible the things you can do with it. .NET 2.0 will be even better and cooler. I have the privilege to be able to work with the Team System product group as part of my daily job, and I ......
