Update on using Typemock Isolator to allow webpart development without a Sharepoint server
Tue, Sep 6 2011 16:56
I have in the past posted about developing SharePoint web parts without having to use a SharePoint server by using Typemock Isolator . This technique relies on using Cassini or IIS Express as the web server to host the aspx page that in turn contains the webpart. This is all well and good for SharePoint 2007, but we get a problem with SharePoint 2010 which seems... Read More...

IDD Building a breakfast comment to a become process – now there is a leap
Sun, Jun 20 2010 2:48
Gil at Typemock has been posting about some ideas we discussed over breakfast at the Typemock Partner conference a while ago, I have been a bit slow at commenting, so I though I better add to the conversation. Though Typemock is an excellent mocking framework, for me basic mocking is not its biggest win. All the ‘classic auto mocking’ of interfaces to speed TDD... Read More...
Mocking Sharepoint for Testing
Thu, Apr 22 2010 5:47
In my previous post I talked about using Isolator to mock Sharepoint to aid the speed of the development process. I find this a productive way of working, but it does not really help in the realm of automated testing. You need a way to programmatically explore a webpart, preferably outside of SharePoint to check its correctness. You could use the methods in my... Read More...

Post QCon thoughts
Sat, Mar 13 2010 6:10
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... Read More...

Thu, Jul 16 2009 11:04
Thanks to everyone who turned up for my presentation on Typemock and Sharepoint in Glasgow last night. I have just upload my slides onto the Black Marble site .
