This isn’t the process you’re looking for
There was a fairly awesome pissing match between “Uncle” Bob Martin and, well, everyone, on Twitter today. Twitter isn’t a great venue for this kind of thing, because it’s hard to read and hard to make a solid point, but basically Bob suggested that you should do everything possible to make sure you have 100% test coverage. He was making the argument that this was the cheaper way to go for the long-term quality and maintainability of code (or at least, that’s what I interpreted it as, in 140 characters or less).
New job at Microsoft (and see you at Mix!)
After almost a year and a half, I'm leaving my dev position in Server and Tools Online to be a program manager in the SQL Azure BI organization. My motivation for the change probably doesn't matter much to people reading this blog, but I will say that I'll greatly miss the people I worked with in STO. As a Web code monkey, it's not often that you get to work on super-high traffic apps (like the MSDN/TechNet forums) or build totally new stuff like the recognition/reputation service that you're already seeing in the code galleries. The recognition system is all Azure based, too, which was pretty neat.
