The technology is there to build better software. are you doing it ?11 Dec 2008
here is a random thought I had today.
From what I’ve seen, in the past 2 years, agile practices have spread among the .Net community. The .Net framework gives us the power to do TDD and follow other agile principles. the community is now empowered with a rich API , so that we don’t have to worry about how to build things. We now have to worry about what we can build and how to build it better.
We have been freed from the shackles of VB and classic asp, with a good OO framework, that is getting better. You name the problem and there is a very good .Net based tool to help you solve it. You want mocking , you have Rhino Mocks, you want persistence you have NHibernate, you want testing APIs, you have Nunit, Mbunit and what not.
The technology and tools to build better software is here, are you using it ? if not what’s stopping you ?
