Based on this news: Stoner will move to Honda in 2011. ok!

And what??    Both riders will move their teams with.
What ????
How many other people will move with ? 5-10-15 … I don’t know!

Rossi made the same (more or less) a few years ago moving from Honda to Yamaha.

Is there anything in common with something you already know ?   mmmmmmm
Just a tip:  “Individuals and interactions over processes and tools”.
What if I say Manifesto for Agile Software Development.

Motorbikes (aka Tools) change totally!
People move to different tools!

People means more than tools!

Build VS2010 sln (with unit tests) in TFS2008

July 12, 2010

Everything worked fine migrating VS2008 solution to VS2010 solution … didn’t it?!?

TFS2008 had a word, because of a reference: unit test projects have reference to Microsoft.VisualStudio.QualityTools.UnitTestFramework.dll, version .
Of course!!!
TFS machine didn’t have .Net4.0 (or VS2010!!!) installed on…done!
Note: VS2010 doesn’t permit change target framework unit test projects, stuck to .Net 4.0, so installing .Net 4.0 is a must!

Again, TFS2008 wasn’t able find that .Net 4.0 assembly … MSBuild build path isn’t updated … yeah! 😉
In order to add new libraries path, you have to updated build service config file (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio 9.0\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\TfsBuildService.exe.config) and update MSBuildPath value with assemblies path.
