Blogging about testing

With our Rosario release, we are entering the software quality tools market in an even more serious way than we are today.  You've heard me talk before about the "pillars" of the Rosario release and one of them being - Testing and Application Quality. Several months ago, we had a new guy join our organization.  His name is James...

Clearing up confusion

There has been quite a lot of confusion around the StyleCop free download tool that was put on Microsoft downloads a while back.  It first crossed my radar probably 6 weeks ago when it was initially made available because it was positioned as a generic source analysis tool and there was a ruckus in the VSTS community about how it related ...

Working on TFS SDK improvements

We are working on improving the TFS SDK to make it easier for people who want to write extensions.  There are many areas for improvement so it's hard to pick a place to start.  We chose, for the first project, a sample VS add-in that demonstrates a pretty wide array of ways in which you can integrate with TFS, inside VS.  It ...

Tickled by a Rosario feature

Today, I'm finally getting around to working on something I've been wanting to do for a while.  Rosario is a big release with a ton of great stuff and I've been thinking for a while that I really need to work on figuring out how to articulate all of that value in a way that people can really understand and be excited about.  To make ...

July '08 TFS Power Tool Preview

We are approaching the release date of our next release of the Team Foundation Server Power Tools.  We are targeting to have it available in about 3 weeks.  As I've mentioned before this is a smaller Power Tools release than we typically have done.  This is because so much of our effort has been on getting TFS 2008 SP1 done.&#...

One of the lingering questions that has never been answered and ...

July '08 DevDiv TFS Dogfood Statistics

I missed the June Dogfood statistics - sorry about that.  This report represents the change since my last dogfood report in May.  The big thing that you will observe is that downloads have dropped dramatically (from a peak around ~150,000,000 to ~50,000,000).  The reason for this is that we installed a TFS proxy on our corp net ...
