what to call an option to dump to stdout?

I’m working on our “view” command where you can view older versions of files as you want – as an example “h view foo.cs;C123” would view the version of foo.cs at changeset 123 “h view $/bar/ack.cs;Lfoo” would view that server item with the version pointed to by the “foo” label.  One of the things we’ve decided…

a few more answers to Stuart’s excellent questions

I still owed Stuart a couple more answers from his last set of questions, and he posted a couple more questions, so these answers should hopefully stand on their own, but check out his questions if the answers seem to lack enough context for digestion. J   1)      Yes, there will definitely be importers for…

WRT Stuart’s excellent questions

Stuart provided some great feedback on his experiences with VS 2002/2003 and SourceSafe.  Since I’ve talked to some co-workers to find some of these answers, and since it’s kind of long-ish, the response has been promoted to its own post.  Read his feedback first for more context, but this post should stand alone fine as well…

random weekend source control babbling

Playing “devil’s advocate” is very much in my nature, so in the absence of external input, I’ll have debates with myself.  I’ve been in a constant debate lately as to the role of source control in the development process.  Necessary evil?  Useful tool?  Glorified backup mechanism?  Thin layer over diff/patch and friends?   Projects like…

fellow pro or amateur sysadmins, rejoice with the power of Monad!

The latest .NET show is Longhorn Fundamentals.  While the initial chunk (in Technobabble) is pretty interesting, the Monad demos (in Enter the Programmer) are killer. I can’t overstate how many seemingly millions of hours of admin work (I did large-scale AFS, AIX, Linux, etc. administration in former lives) Monad would have saved me.  Tons of…

Anders talks about C# 2.0 features and other TechEd 2004 (San Diego) presentations

As Duncan mentions, the C# TechEd 2004 page is up.  Make sure to catch Anders’ presentation on new features (DEV321)!  I’m sure it’d be easier to follow with the audio/video feed, but the presentation covers the new features nicely. I was thinking about covering List<T>’s FindAll and RemoveAll methods (using anonymous delegates, even!) since modifying…


James Newkirk weighs in on VS unit testing and starts talking about the real VSTS value

The venerable James Newkirk has a nice post about VSTS integration.  It came specifically in response to the “no unit testing in base VS?!?” blogging thread.  The gist of it follows. Visual Studio Team System provides an environment which enables a number of development tools to be used and the user can get a consistent experience from…


Hello, World! and a couple of the things I like about C# (2.0)

Who are you? I’m a developer in the Visual Studio group, currently working on Visual Studio 2005 Team System.  More specifically, stealing Buck’s description: I am a developer working on the Burton source control system (Team Foundation), which we code-named Hatteras. We both work in Brian Harry’s group (yes, that Brian Harry) here in lovely North…
