Resharper, TDD and VS 2005 Shortcuts

Yesterday I was looking for some cool videos demonstrating the power of a cool
VS 2005 AddIn named ReSharper coming from a company located in Prag (JetBrains).

I am actually one of the happy and sattisfied developers who are using this great,
dramatically improoving productivity tool. It is a beautiful thing to watch Jean Paul's flying code generation.

Check this by yourself from here (Part1) and here (Part3). Unfortunatelly I was not able until now, to find the second part of that Video. Maybe one of you will have more luck.

Jean is blogging about very interessting things and one of them is also a post where he 
provides us with a link to Keyboard Shortcuts Poster for VS 2005.

Free Web Interface for Team Foundation Server

While browsing I have just found what I was looking for
a half year ago. What I have in mind is a proper Web Interface
for Microsoft's Team Foundation Server.

That tool comes from a company named devBiz, which was meanwhile aquistioned
by Micsosoft. Their TeamPlain solution seems to be the one which will be
the future WebInterface for TFS.

AND .... The best Thing is .... This tool is for FREE for valid TFS license

I'm gonna to check this out and will for sure come back on this, after
having collected some first impressions.

Cool Thing!

My Thoughts and Links on Test Driven Development

Hi, again!

I was totally busy since the last post, but here I come again.

The topic I will discuss here is "Test Driven Development" since
I am a big fan of this approach and have used it in many IT projects.

A colleague of mine has sent me a link yesterday (Many thanks to Pawel by the way!)
to Doug Seven's blog, regarding TDD.

That brought me to write down my favourite links on this development approach.
Here they comes:

- Ronald E Jeffries XP Programming homepage, which sumarizes all the things, you should know or be aware of when starting to use eXtreme programming techniques.

- NMock2 - a mocking framework I have used for last 2 years. Thank You guys! I love to use it.

Other links will follow, when I find more time.
