Technical Debt

Wed, 12 Nov 2014 15:47:55 +0000

I’ve been doing some research on the topic of technical debt recently, and found the following great resources: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technical_debt http://martinfowler.com/bliki/TechnicalDebt.html http://martinfowler.com/bliki/TechnicalDebtQuadrant.html http://www.construx.com/10x_Software_Development/Technical_Debt/ http://www.ontechnicaldebt.com/ http://www.slideshare.net/intechnica/technical-debt-101 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUYIFLfyxoI Anyone know of others that would be worth looking at?

Kanban, MMFs and the Goldilocks Principle

Fri, 24 Oct 2014 15:03:44 +0000

http://agileproductdesign.com/blog/2009/kanban_over_simplified.html really resonates with me. The article explores Kanban and how it differs from other agile approaches such as Scrum. My experience with scrum was as follows. You peel off a set of stories from the backlog to deliver in that sprint. Because you have a fixed-timebox there is pressure to make the stories quite...

CodeLens incoming changes indicator

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 04:33:00 +0000

In case you missed in my recent post about Code @ Scale, Mathew Aniyan has just blogged about the CodeLens incoming changes indicator, an enhancement to CodeLens collaboration indicators that we’re shipping in Visual Studio Update 2. This helps the developer see changes in other branches that could impact the code they are currently working...



Code @ Scale

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 04:29:00 +0000

As customers you may not be that interested about how we are internally organized to deliver the tools and services in Visual Studio, TFS and Visual Studio Online. However, it helps to have a little of that background to understand why individuals focus on the topics they do. So, given that I have been quiet...



Is Model Driven Development Feasible?

Thu, 07 Apr 2011 04:41:24 +0000

This is the question asked in the title of a post on our modeling and tools forum, and rather than answer directly there, I thought it would make more sense to post an answer here, as it’s then easier to cross-reference in the future. The body of the post actually reads: Various Microsoft attempts at...



Sprinkling the MEF fairy dust on DSLs

Tue, 25 May 2010 02:19:17 +0000

We’ve been enjoying injecting MEF extension points in our tools to make it easy for customers to write extensions using very simple code. Jean-Marc has just posted a sample demonstrating how MEF-enable your own DSL so you too can add MEF extension points for customers. See http://blogs.msdn.com/jmprieur/archive/2010/05/17/enabling-your-dsl-for-mef-extensions.aspx for details.
