Tool for code internal assemblies code analyze or reflector tool for our applications to improve the performance or to know the internals of the assembly we have created. I was using Red Gate .NET Reflector earlier for same as it was free and with frequent updates. Now Red Gate has made that tool paid (about 35$) version so I found alternative tools from that I can see IL and C# code easily for free. Why we need to pay money if we can develop open source product like ILSpy? That decompiler tool almost giving same functionalities like .NET Reflector. More...

Manifesto for Agile Software Development

Agile Manifesto Development What about Agile Methodologies? Is Agile (SCRUM) still popular in big software projects? Do we still have to implement bicycle with new name for software development process? I think nope, because  we are uncovering better ways of developing

vNext - Microsoft Visual Studio 2011 IDE features

VS 2011vNext – is new version of Visual Studio 2011. First article about features was created by Weston Hutchins - Program Manager, Visual Studio IDE Platform Microsoft Corporation 19 May 2011. I am going to discuss new features presented by VS2011 IDE  vNext presentation in this article. What is cool about brand new 2011 Visual Studio? It is more organized, clean, nice look and feel. If you with VS 2011 it can save a lot of time, it is busy a lot of toolbars and buttons, especially in debugging. You can do each thing in different ways. For example search and replace changed from Find and Replace -> Find symbols -> Navigate to, few examples how to do same thing in new VS 2011 in demo from channel 9 below. Challenge for vNext release is simpler (reducing amount of buttons, setting UI to concentrate on your code) + faster (overall responsiveness, long running operations, memory utilization and better feedback / telemetry) = more productive. Project is fully supported between 2011 and 2010 solution projects.

Simpler + Faster = More Productive More...

What is Velocity SCRUM projects?

Breaking your project into Iterations and getting regular feedback on the iteration is the essence of Agile.  In simple terms, velocity in an agile world is the amount of work that you can do in each iteration. This is based on experience from previous iterations. As you move over time and do multiple Sprints, the Velocity will be a very useful tool that will allow you to plan and predict the amount of work that the team can do in future Sprint cycles. If your team has completed multiple sprints, you can forecast release and product completion dates and plan future projects more accurately by reviewing the velocity report. Based on the velocity of previous sprints that the report illustrates, you can accomplish the following goals: track how much effort your team has reported as complete for each sprint and estimate how much backlog effort your team can handle in future sprints if your team composition and sprint duration stay constant.
