Waterfall Is The Perfect Methodology
Got your attention? Good. I’ll say it again: Waterfall is the perfect methodology. It attempts perfection from the outset. Perfect requirements, perfect design, perfect development and perfect delivery in a perfect world. If you live in that world where requirements don’t ever change, then you should probably use a waterfall type methodology for developing your software; and you should drop me a line (although they probably won’t let you have anything sharp like a pencil to write with there). For ......

Resharper Tip of the Day: Moving Chunks of Code
Today I have been using a ReSharper keyboard shortcut to rearrange chunks of code. I needed to move a method above another method in a class. With the cursor at the beginning of the line inside the chunk I want to move, I hit: Ctrl+Shift+Alt+UpArrow and it moves the entire method up one section (above the method before it). So.. given: public string SomeMethod() { Here.Is.SomeCode.ToBe(Super... } public string MyMethod() { Here.Is.SomeCode(that).Save... } I put my cursor at the line ......

Happy Easter
I hope everyone had a good Easter/Passover/Whatever holiday. It was good to spend some time with family.

This isn’t my usual tech-focused ......

Twitter has become quite the phenomenon lately. I even heard it mentioned on a Leno episode. As a developer, it helps me to watch conversations (sometimes arguments) between great developer to help understand the pros and cons of different technologies. It also helps to get inside(-ish) information about technologies that I’m interested in. I thought I’d put together a list of people that .Net developers might have good reason to follow on Twitter.

Web Forms Have Been Beddy, Beddy Good To Me
In the limelight these days you hear a lot of jabber about MVP, MVC, MVVM, MVKVM, MVMLK, MVMTV and any other MV… you can think of for ASP.NET. These architectural patterns are great but the most stable, testable and maintainable code is still written in traditional web forms development. Microsoft created web forms development to be a practical and easy to understand way to separate your concerns. By separating your business logic code into the code-behind, you make it easy for designers to run with ......
