Visual Studio

Microsoft Mocking Framework and TypeMock


While everyone has been wondering over the past couple years when Microsoft would ship its own version of a mocking framework, as of yesterday TypeMock announced it has been acquired by Microsoft and the product will be included in future versions of Visual Studio.  At least they didn't follow their previous pattern and create a less powerful clone of other products already on the market.  Hmm, interesting this should be me thinks.  Next to follow, possibly a DynamicProxy2 clone from Microsoft?  What day is today again?

Vibrant Ink for Visual Studio 2008


For those of you that enjoy the Vibrant Ink theme that was originally produced for Textmate, John Lam converted it to work under both Vim and Visual Studio 2005 a while back.  I've enjoyed that for both editors, however with Visual Studio 2008 out, we need to update.  I've updated the settings file to now work with Visual Studio 2008.  Feel free to download it here.
