Will Smith,

I've been working on the Statement of Work (SOW) for the new project I am involved with. The client is looking for a lot of detail. Initially, I shared my concern about putting too much detail in this ...

Will Smith,

Last week I started working on the build scripts for my new project. I've worked on build environments in the past, but I didn't really commit everything to memory. Thus, I have had to reinvent the wheel ...

Matthew Podwysocki,

Well, after much trial and tribulation, we finally have our DC ALT.NET site up. Thanks to Phil McMillan and Entropy Zero Consulting for hosting the site! Right now it's a work in progress and I hope to ...

Dru Sellers,

So, I continue to find ways to be an agile architect. I just finished getting two teams started on a rather large project at work. For about a month or so ahead of time I was spending 2-3 hours a day ramping ...

Will Smith,

This week I learned a hard lesson. I was at a customer site and assumed that because my boss agreed with the Agile principles and practices that I was touting, then the customer would agree without question. ...

Theo Moore,

Ever work one of those "This an Agile project to speed up getting features to production" type projects? 'Course we have; ain't we all? The one I am currently assigned to is like this. Trouble is that ...

Will Smith,

I am working on two new projects. On one of these projects I am the only resource. I am responsible for obtaining user stories from the customer, testing, development and deployment. The only thing that ...

Will Smith,

Well, I have been thinking about hopping on the blogwagon for quite a while. Now, I have finally done it. For a brief introduction to me, I am a software developer of 13 years and an Agilist. I am currently ...

Matthew Podwysocki,

We are announcing our second meeting of DC ALT.NET on January 15th at 7PM. The meeting this month will bring ALT.NET to CMAP. Are you a developer who always keeps an eye out for a better way? Do you look ...

Chris Canal,

It's that time of year again, and here's another blog started with the best of intentions! As with a lot of developers, starting a blog is one of the steps I'm taking to becoming a better developer. Here ...

Matthew Podwysocki,

Brad Wilson and Jim Newkirk who are both from Microsoft announced earlier this week about the release of xUnit.net RC1. They split the project into the core (xunit and console), and the extensions (Resharper ...

Rob,

The Troyism is a comment that is zany, off the wall, and completely unexpected! It makes you think and entertains you at the same time. Sometimes it only makes sense in the context that it is presented ...

KenL,

Up until two weeks ago I never heard of ALT.NET. Have you? Are you like me; constantly thinking outside the box? I've always said that I build systems that work around problems and brick walls. I've always ...

Rob,

A little over a month ago, I drove down to Tulsa TechFest with Dru. I think the best part of the whole conference was not the presentations, not the speaking (although I learned new things), but the face ...
