.NET Links

Added two new .NET links: Patterns & Practices and NUnit Addin. Patterns & Practices slogan is “proven practices for predictable results”. They include documentation on Reference Architectures, Operational Practices, and Building Blocks. While there are some greatonesuptherealready, look for more in April to coincide with the VS.NET 2003 release. NUnit Addin integrates the popular NUnit .NET port of the xUnit testing framework directly into VS.NET for “point and test” capability. I’ve already given Jamie my #1 enhancement request – automatic test execution on every build. I’ve also had a look at the code and I would highly recommend any add-in developer take a look. Jamie’s add-in framework is very impressive. I hacked in a sample implementation of auto test execution very quickly because his code is so nicely factored.
