Unit Testing, Agile Development, Leadership & .NET - By Roy Osherove
There's nothing that glamorous about the OOTB stuff that MS puts out. However, I'm glad to see a shift in thought on MS's part about open-source - such as with AJAX.NET. With a community of people creating better applications and tools, i hope it'll humble MS to recognize grassroots efforts and get in the trenches with us.
I don't entirely agree either. but the HOT/NOT format made me laugh!
If taken for comedy - this is great. If taken too seriously - this is BAD.
Hot: Contrived Hot-or-Not lists
DDD, I think that is certainly how.
Coming to .NET from the open source (Python) world, perhaps I have a different perspective.
CVS is defintely not hot (SVN is though). .NET 2 is not yet out, few people are adopting .NET 3 for production just yet (or even looking at is as far as I can tell)...
XP is not out, it is less 'enterprisey' than scrum and so will always be 'cooler' to some eyes.
NUnit does have a lot of respect.
MVC is not out - but I think it means something different in our world...
