If you’ve been paying attention to LinkedIn, you’ve probably noticed that I am looking for a new job. If you are hiring and you would like to talk, shoot me an email.
I love this app. I first used this back during my tenure at Logica when we were working with StreamInsight. It’s a good app to use to be able to quickly test out chunks of C#, VB.NET, and F# code. The app is extensible so you can download other drivers that let you hook up to other SQL/NoSQL databases. Really cool for learning/prototyping code.

NCrunch is an automated concurrent testing for Visual Studio. What that means in English is that you can configure it to run your unit tests as you are typing your code. You can configure it to run the unit tests that are impacted by the changes you make so you aren’t running the entire suite of unit tests. This is very handy, especially if you have good code coverage. It even collects code coverage numbers and performance metrics. More information can be found on the website: https://www.ncrunch.net.
