Techniques for testing legacy code
In this talk
Some of The techniques described are taken from the most excellent book Working Effectively with Legacy Code By Michael C. Feathers. Hopefully, we'll have a couple of copies from the book to give away this meeting as raffle prizes.
What is MSF Agile and why it is the first process template in the new Microsoft Team foundation server Visual Studio 2005.
MSF is “not-a-methodology” used for years internally at Microsoft, as a framework for managing software and deployment projects. MSF is actually a group of guidelines and practices, which enables the “team-of-peers”, leading the project, to focus on doing the most important thing at every given time. Using MSF principles makes it easy to discover how far the project is from its target and what is the direction you need to steer the project to get back on track.
In the New Team foundation system server part of the new Visual studio 2005 suite, the first process template is MSF Agile.
In this lecture I’ll try to explain what MSF is and why Agile MSF is actually a proof to the fact that MSF is an agile frame ware.
