Post QCon thoughts
Interesting time at QCon yesterday, shame I was only there one day, I do like the events that are not limited to a single vendor or technology. The multi presenter session I was involved in on Microsoft interoperability seemed to go well, there is talk of repeating at other events or podcasting. It is a nice format if you can get the sub-sessions linking nicely, like themed grok talks.
Due to chatting to people (but that why you go really isn't it?), I only managed to get to one other session, but I was the one I wanted to see, Roy Osherove’s on using CThru to enable testing of monolithic frameworks such as Silverlight. It got a few things clearer in my mind over using CThu, a tool I have tried to use in the past but not had as much success as I hoped. So I think I will have another go at trying to build a SharePoint workflow testing framework, the problem has rested on the back burner too long. I think I just need to persist longer in digging to the eventing model to see why my workflows under test do not start. Roy’s comment that there is no short cut for this type of problem to avoid an archaeological excavation into the framework under test, I think is the key here.
