Pex and Code contracts

Filed under: Research — @ 8:57 pm

Last week I saw couple of things in Microsoft Dev Labs that looks very interesting and worth watching and give it a try. They are

I love TDD and it indeed saved lot of my time on maintenance. I can go on and on about it, but that is for one another post. But to be fair, even though I love TDD everyone knows it take time to adopt and sometimes I get lazy as well. One line code change I am going to make why would I want to write 20 mine code to test 🙂

Anyway, the reason I was excited about above mentioned two things, it looks like they could help alleviate the pardon of writing too many repetitive tests, when you can generate most of the input validation through those two. I am going to experiment with those two in coming weeks and do an update about these two products.

MVPs, please blog more…

I am sucker of reading technical blogs. It is like reading free chapters from recent books for most of the blogs. I follow blogs in C#, F#, .Net, Ruby and some Java. Most of the blogs that I follow, they tent to write good blogs as often as possible. For last month or so, I finish reading all my RSS feeds in a week or so my unread feed is less than 5 most of the time. So I decided to venture out and find some more blogs that I can read and use.

My obvious choice was Microsoft web site. I searched for C# blog and Google took me to Microsoft C# MVP list. I was so happy to see number of MVPs and I recognized couple of the MVPs since I follow their blogs. I really thought I hit the mother load of good blogs, but to my surprise most of them don’t blog at all or they are blogging somewhere else that Microsoft web site doesn’t have the correct blog address. Either way, I would like to see MVPs to blog more often so that they can share the wealth of knowledge they have with the community. If they are blogging then Microsoft need to update the MVP list with proper blog address. To my surprise some of them didn’t even blog for the last month and they have MVP status? I hope I am wrong.

Please blog more…
