Join me at the Developer Openspace 2015 in Leipzig


I should not say this in public because I’m a Swiss Guy, but I love the German Community ;). I’ve been giving Usergroup speeches in many German cities over the last few years. Every community event I attended in Germany was fully organized, well-coming, and the community engaged with the speakers and workshop leads. One of the most unusual events in Germany is starting in a few days in Leipzig. It is the Developer Openspace 2015. Here are a few impressions: Abstract: An Open Space...

Stuff I learned yesterday


I listen to a few podcasts. Mainly technical ones. I recently got a hint from Mike Minutillo about a podcast called “Stuff I learned yesterday”. I was blown away when I started listening to this podcast. It makes you think more about stuff that you learned. Furthermore, this podcast is full of stories from the podcasters themselves but also from the community. You’ll find the podcast here One of the recent inspiring and very emotional episodes are Finding clarity If you have...

Bye bye Machine.Specifications


I recently announced Machine.Specifications.Resharper 1.1.0 release. This is the last release I did for Machine.Specifications. I’m taking a step back from the project. Let me give you a bit of background how I ended up maintaining Machine.Specifications and why it’s time to move on.

Machine.Specifications.Runner.Resharper 1.0.0 released


Thanks to Matt Ellis and some bug hunting of me I can proudly say that we have released Resharper 9 integration for Machine.Specifications. You can now install the plugin by using the provided extension manager in Resharper 9. For those who are using Resharper versions older than 9 I pushed an update for the plugin for Resharper 8.2. It resolves an issues when you switch from Debug to Release mode or vice versa while having a unit test session open. If you did, you actually had to restart...

Machine.Specifications 0.9.1 released


This is a really quick announcement. I recently released Machine.Specifications 0.9.0. With that release I introduced a breaking change: I disabled the console output capturing by accident. If you are using console outputs in your specs and need to see them then I strongly advise you to upgrade to Machine.Specifications 0.9.1. You only need to upgrade the Machine.Specifications nuget package in your solution. None of the other components are affected. This is the beauty of the new architecture...

Machine.Specifications 0.9.0 released


Today we released the next version of Machine.Specifications. This release implements an important feature to move on in the future. We implemented a complete runner dependency abstraction. What does that mean? Let me take a step back.   The picture above shows the state of Machine.Specifications previous to V0.9.0. The console runner, the resharper runner, the TDnet runner and more were directly dependent upon the same Machine.Specifications version. This means when we release a new...
