GuestPost: See the wood despite the trees with NDepend
[Check out other guest posts if you like this one. They are often better than mine!] One thing I miss about being the Technical Editor of the UK MSDN Flash is interacting with smart individuals to get their technical article ready for inclusion. It occurs to me that I use GuestPosts on my blog to get a similar “fix” :-) It is time for another fix :-) In this case the author is Patrick Smacchia, a very smart developer who happens to be the the lead developer for the rather amazing tool NDepend (and ......

Guest Post: Using an Interactive Console to explore the .NET Framework (IronRuby)
Shay Friedman, author of IronRuby Unleashed (check out my review) kindly agreed to do a guest post on my blog. He explores how IronRuby can be very useful to a .NET developer, even if that developer is a die hard C# or Visual Basic developer who has no plans (Surely not! ) to use IronRuby in finished products. The power of an Interactive Console should not be underestimated – it can give you tremendous productivity gains, which is why I also recommend http://linqpad.net/ to offer similar behaviour ......

GuestPost: Announcing gmStudio V9.85 for VB6/ASP/COM re-engineering
Mark Juras of GreatMigrations.com kindly sent me an article on gmStudio which I have posted on my old VB focused goto100 site. gmStudio is a programmable VB6/ASP/COM re-engineering tool that enables an agile tool-assisted rewrite methodology and helps teams dramatically lower the total cost, risk, and disruption of ambitious migration projects without sacrificing quality, control, or time to market. You can find the rest of the article over on goto100. Figure 1: the gmStudio Main Form ......

GuestPost: Unit Testing Entity Framework (v1) Dependent Code using TypeMock Isolator
Time for another guest post (check out others in the series), this time bringing together the world of mocking with the world of Entity Framework. A big thanks to Moses for agreeing to do this. Unit Testing Entity Framework Dependent Code using TypeMock Isolator by Muhammad Mosa Introduction Unit testing data access code in my opinion is a challenging thing. Let us consider unit tests and integration tests. In integration tests you are allowed to have environmental dependencies such as a physical ......

Guest Post: Using IronRuby and .NET to produce the ‘Hello World of WPF’
[You might want to also read other GuestPosts on my blog – or contribute one?] On the 26th and 27th of March (2010) myself and Edd Morgan of Microsoft will be popping along to the Scottish Ruby Conference. I dabble with Ruby and I am a huge fan whilst Edd is a “proper Ruby developer”. Hence I asked Edd if he was interested in creating a guest post or two for my blog on IronRuby. This is the second of those posts. If you should stumble across this post and happen to be attending the Scottish Ruby ......

GuesPost: Typemock Isolator – Much more than an Isolation framework
This is the second guest post from Gil Zilberfeld who works at TypeMock and kindly agreed to do a couple of guest posts on Mocking . The first was an Introduction to Mocking. Typemock Isolator – Much more than an Isolation framework In my last post, I showed how to fake a dependency. But this involved doing a couple of things. First, it involved changing the original method. Then, I had to write wrappers (a real wrapper and the fake wrapper) and finally, I had to inject the fake object in the test. ......

GuestPost: Introduction to Mocking
I have previously posted on the area of Test Doubles and Mocking under the guise of Project NEric. I also have blogged on specific tools such as Pex and TypeMock – but I wouldn’t claim to be an expert on the area. Far from it. Luckily I know a man who is. Meet Gil Zilberfeld who works at TypeMock and kindly agreed to do a couple of guest posts on Mocking. This is the first of those two. I should get the second online next week when I return from holiday. Thanks again Gill. Introduction to Mocking ......
