Can’t Link, Won’t Link #4

ASP.NET

Debugging with VS2008 at the Dallas ASP.NET UG – A look at various debugging tools available to the ASP.NET developer.

Development

Using Singletons Safely - @Mendelt talks about not how to create this popular pattern, but rather how to use it safely – something often missed in other guides.

50 Extremely Useful and Powerful CSS Tools – LONG article (was trying to read on my Xda!) but covers a LOT of good tools. Very good resource.

Experimental Study about TDD – From the people at Channel9, Nachi Nagappan talks about the good/bad sides of TDD, based on metrics (not had a chance to watch this myself yet, but it looks like it may be interesting).

Design and Testability – Good article with some good links about how design and testability do not always go hand-in-hand, but design and test-focused development (TDD/BDD/ATDD etc.) can reap some great rewards.

TDD Does Not Mean “Test First” – Great article on testing approach. Only just found Sarah’s blog, check it out, some good reads!

GTD

How to Control the Way You React (Part 1) – I REALLY need to read this, re-read it, and then read it again! :)

5 Key Characteristics of a Successful Entrepreneur – Interesting article, a colleague and I were actually discussing point four the other day.

11 Ways to Cure “Someday Syndrome” – Good article. Real food for thought on rather than thinking/dreaming about getting things done, actually get them down in to a project and actually done!

Community

Start Up Your Web Business with Microsoft BizSpark – I actually use DreamSpark since I am studying in MS technologies, and I have to say, its an AWESOME scheme. Great to see “M$” helping out the startup’s too. Good job MS!

First Look: Firefox 3.1 Beta 2 – Firefox gets it’s own Chrome’s “Incognito” mode..
