Building ASP .NET 5 Applications on Linux with TFS 2015, Part 1: TFS setup

August 13, 2015 | By | No Comments

I recently left my Windows-centric comfort zone a bit and took a journey into Linux-land to see how I could get an ASP .NET 5 application building on a Linux machine. This was a surprisingly tricky process, so I figured I would blog about what I did so that other people could get up and running easily. This involves some set up on the TFS side, …

April 30, 2015 | By | No Comments

“Prediction is very difficult, especially if it’s about the future” Niels Bohr I like the analogy of the lottery ticket (heard at an Agile user group, just don’t remember who said it, sorry), you know the cost of the ticket, you just don’t know how much it will pay, if anything. The challenge of defining value is that you can only really measure it after the …
