“Visual Studio 2015 + Cordova Update 1 can lead to broken Cordova projects”
The dev tools team recently released update 1 for the Visual Studio Tools for Apache Cordova, however this update can cause VS to hang and/or other issues with Cordova projects. This is a known issue and it is one that impacts early adopters most of all because it is the combination of two things that cause this to happen, one being the update the second being the original Windows 10 SDK. There was an issue with the SDK and it was re-released a few days after the initial release with a fix, but anyone with the original bits will have a problem – this includes anyone installing VS 2015 from the ISO while not connected to the internet (if you are connected, even if you use the ISO, it will get the latest bits).

“Intellitest | Visual Studio Toolbox – WinBuzzer”
In this episode, Robert is joined by Jeff Fattic, who shows us how to use IntelliTest to automatically generate unit tests. IntelliTest explores your .NET code to generate test data and a suite of unit tests. For every statement in the code, a test input is generated that will execute that statement. A case analysis is performed for every conditional branch in the code. This analysis is used to generate test data for a parameterized unit test for each of your methods, creating unit tests with high code coverage.
