Just wanted to mention that I since a couple of weeks is a member of the CodeStyleEnforcer team. You can read more about CodeStyleEnforcer on the blog of its creator Joel Fjordén.
The CodeStyleEnforcer is a truly amazing plug-in to Visual Studio that checks your coding style as you type along providing visual feedback of your code style violations. Not only naming conventions are checked but also some other rules (for instance visibility conventions etc).
In the upcoming release support has been added to quickly correct code style violations automatically. Be sure to check it out!

Just wanted to share the news that I will be speaking at Öredev together with my collegue Henrik Strömberg. We have had a lot of experience of advanced design-time programming in .NET and was asked to share our findings with the programming community.
Be sure to attend the conference and our slot.
2006-09-03, 16:55 - ProgrammingWell, when I started blogging I thought that I would share the wonders of WPF with the world.
I haven't done that very much I'm afraid. So I better shape it up!!
At this time my focus is on how to mix standard user interfaces with rich 3D effects to create intuitive user interfaces.
An quite interesting article on CodeProject was written by Dragos Dumitru Sbarlea.
Using 2D controls in 3D environment Even though the sample itself it kinda ugly it's a nice idea.
Check it out!

Three white men were taken captive by a hostile Indian tribe. The chieftain was willing to let them go so he took them to a tepee, where there was no light. He put one head band on each of their heads (he had 3 white and 2 red - so 2 head bands were not used). Then they went out in a queue so that each man saw the head-band of those standing in front of himself (the first one did not see any head band, the second one saw the first one's head band, and the third one saw the head bands of the two others). If somebody said the colour of his head-band, they all would be free.
If they had three white headbands could they survive? They did! How?

Here TDD is really handy. It helps you to be quite productive even when you only have a few minutes to work at the time.
Hmmm...Got back to the computer. Aha! A red test...start/continue fixing it.
No red test? Lets write another one...
And when you cannot sit down for so many hours at the time you also cannot keep everything in mind. In that case it feels safe to have a bunch of unit tests to asure you you haven't broken anything.
The same thing TDD always is good for but more to the extreme!!
