TechDays and Jhb Training Class

I will be co-presenting with Ahmed Salijee at TechDays in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town (12, 16 and 19 Oct respectively). Check out the website for details on exact dates and venues – there is tons of new stuff to show off, so this is going to be a really exciting event!

Lab Management: Configuring Workgroup Lab Machines to a TFS on a Domain

I’ve installed Windows 8 on my laptop, enabled HyperV and upgraded my TFS from 2010 to 2012. Since Lab Management 2012 introduced Standard Environments, I can use my HyperV machines in lab environments right out of Windows 8. However, while I was configuring my lab, I ran into a problem. My laptop is on my work domain, and my lab machines (running on HyperV) are not joined to the domain – they’re in a workgroup.

Upgrading MSF Agile 5.0 to MSF Agile 6.0: Why does my velocity chart not work?

So you’ve just upgraded your TFS 2010 server to TFS 2012. And you’ve been using the MSF Agile 5.0 process template. When you open the Web Access webpage, you get a message saying that some features need to be enabled, and you click the link and it “upgrades” your process template so that the Backlogs and Boards work in Web Access. All looks good.

Unit Testing Javascript in VS 2012

You’re a responsible developer – you write code, and then you write tests (or, perhaps you even write tests and then write code?). You also love good, solid frameworks that separate concerns and utilize dependency injection and inversion of control and all of that good stuff – you’re using MVC for your web applications.

Build with a Hosted Build Controller: A First Attempt

I am working on some code for the TFS Tester Power Tool with my colleague Anna Russo (who just got her first MVP award!) and we’re using TFS Preview for source control and work item tracking. From the start I wanted to get some unit tests and builds up and running. The challenge for the unit testing side was that the tool works against a Team Foundation Server, so testing required some sort of mocking or faking.

Microsoft Fakes – Customizing the System Whitelist (or, enabling Fakes for classes you’ve always wanted to fake, like WebClient)

So you’re sitting down planning some tests for your shiny new code, only to find that your code uses WebClient to download a file. No problem – you’ve been reading about Microsoft’s new Fakes framework, so you just right-click the System reference in your test project and select “Create Fakes” and you get a bunch of cool fakes to work with.
