Using NUnit's Test Selection Language in .NET Core

TLDR; In the next release of the NUnit3 VS Test Adapter, it will be possible to utilize filters written in NUnit’s native Test Selection Language.


With the release of .NET Core 3.1, I’ve been finding myself working on porting a number of code bases from Windows-only .NET Framework to this new exciting cross-platform world. My .NET Unit Testing Framework of choice has long been NUnit and a number of these code bases have utilized nunit to run continuous integration testing.


Kalamazoo X 2012: Hidden Gem Of The Midwest Conference Scene

I woke up on Saturday April 21st 2012 not knowing what to expect. Well, not exactly. Michael Eaton had been telling me for the last few years about the conference he helps organize called Kalamazoo X. How he hand selects the best speakers he’s heard throughout the previous year and asks them to come out to Kalamazoo and give a 30 minute talk for the single track conference. Unlike your typical technical conference, KalX is strictly about soft skills. The touchy-feely type of information that another human saying to you will have a far greater impact than simply reading printed words on a page.


Hudson and TFS2008 For Continuous Integration

At work we’re taking some time to get a proper CI environment up and running. Since we also have a Java product, Hudson was already set up and being used. I had used Hudson in the past for doing continuous integration of IronRuby under Mono on Linux. Getting our build up and running was pretty much a breeze thanks to the TFS, Gallio, MSBuild, and NCover plugins. Once that was set up and running, it was easy enough to subscribe to the CheckinEvent on TFS and have it ping a defined URL on Hudson to kick off the build. Yay! Proper Continuous Integration!

The 30 Day Intake Experiment

My entire life I’ve been what is commonly known as “fat”, or, as the clothing industry calls it, “Big and Tall”. I have been blessed with both an impressive girth and height. For as long as I can remember these have been my defining physical qualities. I generally cast an imposing figure over my contemporaries, that didn’t stop the teasing during my childhood of course, but those times passed generally without much incident. And for years these attributes caused me no real harm, medically I was “healthy” besides my obesity. My cholesterol was low, my blood pressure normal, no problems with sugar levels.
