An Infinite Onion

Sometimes it seems that there is an infinite onion of layers to explain about what the software systems do that I support. This last week, I didn't realize a function that it does. It reminded me of the phrase “turtles all the way down”. 

'"Turtles all the way down" is an expression of the problem of infinite regress. The saying alludes to the mythological idea of a World Turtle that supports a flat Earth on its back. It suggests that this turtle rests on the back of an even larger turtle, which itself is part of a column of increasingly large turtles that continues indefinitely.'

Agile or the CBRE way?

Years ago a scrum master at CBRE started to say that that is not the "agile way". She corrected herself and said "I mean the CBRE way". We all laughed because they certainly are not always the same thing. As I have reflected on the last few years, I have come to understand that, at least in my team we are agile.

The Project Management Triangle

From The Developer Society

The triangle works like this. There are three key points: good, fast, and cheap. Your project can be any two of these but never all three. 

That means there’s always a trade off:

Cheap + fast = lower quality work

Fast + good = expensive

Good + cheap = not happening anytime soon

What are your priorities?

How to remove code coverage highlighting from your code

In Visual Studio, there is an option called "Analyze Code Coverage for All Tests" in the Test menu. After running that, the code is colored to allow you to see which sections are covered by tests or not. 

You can view previous code coverage results from the Test\Code Coverage Results menu item. In this pane, you can turn off the coloring by clicking the "Show Code Coverage Coloring" button.
