In my effort to bring a good development environment for the next version of Tech Head Brothers portal, in which we should be (at the moment) three to develop, I went on with the integration of NDepend, the wonderful tool of Patrick Smacchia, with the just as well JetBrains Team City build management server.
Continuous integration is very nice and works very good. Then I discovered another nice feature directly built in Team City: Duplicate Finder. Ok you might use other tools to do that, but it is there so just use it in two clicks.
When I started to work on the new version of Tech Head Brothers I decided to use the new version of the unit testing framework from Microsoft. Before making this decision I read that it was much better and faster in several places. As I also wanted to get code coverage I thought it was a good idea.
I also had to setup a version control system and decided to use subversion with the facility of the free VisualSVN Server. Very simple way to setup in less than 10 min (including download time) a subversion repository on a Windows server. I highly recommend it ! I am also now, for some months, using VisualSVN that provides a seamless integration between subversion and Visual Studio 2005 and 2008. VisualSVN Limited offered a license of VisualSVN to me and my brother. Thanks a lot, really appreciated! And now at innoveo solutions, my company, we are also using it.
