    Has this "philosophy" or approach in .NET development caught the attention of many yet? POCO of course is the .NET version of POJO (Plain Old Java Objects), which is the approach of designing Java business objects that do not depend on some container...

  • PHP can do Test-Driven Development too

    Maybe you thought that test-driven development is restricted only to platforms like Java and .NET...I'll be happy to inform you that PHP can also do that! Here's my simplest test case using TDD on PHP: 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 <...

  • TDD is about design; tests are just side effects

    codebetter.com was down earlier. Dunno why. Anyway, when it went back up I went through some of the posts by Scott Bellware. The following stuff got my attention: Debunking Microsoft's Guidelines for Test-Driven Development and Microsoft Takes It on the...

  • Preaching TDD to students

    I've always had a soft spot in my heart for students. Maybe my former (programming) students would vehemently disagree with that. But I've always wanted to teach the things I've learned and applied in my craft to students. After all, I've...

  • Borland resurrects the "Turbo" Brand

    http://www.turboexplorer.com It brings back good memories indeed. Maybe we'll finally see those old Turbo C or Turbo C++ copies in schools laid to rest. When these tools come out early next month (September) I'll surely check out Turbo C# and...

  • Ubuntu 6.06 (Dapper): a welcome surprise

    If you've read my previous blogs, you'll see that I've been using Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) since it was "Flight 6." I still chose to reformat/reinstall on my notebook instead of just doing an "apt-get upgrade" in order to find out how well it supports...

  • Windows.Forms on Mono@Linux

    Ok, so yesterday I took a look at MonoDevelop's GUI designer for Gtk# and showed a screenshot of the same Gtk# desktop app running on Windows (Server 2003) and Linux (via VMWare). Today I played around with the Mono 1.1.13 that comes with Ubuntu Dapper...
  • A look at MonoDevelop's GUI designer for Gtk#

  • Ubuntu Dapper Beta with Xgl also rocks!

    I just installed Xgl on my laptop running the beta 2 of Ubuntu "Dapper Drake." My cheapo laptop has a measly Intel 855GM integrated graphics chip set, but Xgl works acceptably on it Actually the final version of Ubuntu Dapper Drake (6.06) is supposed...
  • Xgl rocks!

    The hype machine is on Windows Vista and Mac OS X lately. But have you seen Xgl ? While still currently bleeding-edge (i.e. under heavy development), it enables eye candy and functionality on Linux today similar to (or maybe even better than) that promised...
