Related Work Items to Reinforce Good Process

Headline: Always associate related work items to your changesets upon check-in. This post shows an easy way to do that using a Query that also reinforces the process. Scrum Sprint Board Overview Most projects I work on with Visual Studio and Team Foundation Server use the Scrum process template. I also do some work using […]

Which Branch Do I Check My Code Into?

I’m surprised how frequently I hear this question. To me it’s rather simple, but when I explain my mental model to others I usually hear, “Oh, that’s simple!” So it seems many do not share this model. I did a blog post on a more restricted site some years ago, and I’m doing a new […]

Reusable Library Naming

I plan to call my projects KarlZ.Silverlight.* while the assemblies they produce will be called KarlZ.*. Then I’ll link from the Silverlight project to the existing files in the normal .NET projects. The Problem – Different CLRs I’d like to use both MVC (Model-View-Controller) and Silverlight presentation tiers. My development and test environment for MVC […]
