Verde Overview Verde is an integration test and application health verification framework for ASP.Net MVC. Integration tests are intended to automate verifying the different components of your application such as databases, web services, etc. are working together correctly. Unlike test runners integrated into Visual Studio or standalone applications, the Verde framework runs tests directly within your web application; leveraging the same configuration settings, security permissions, network topology, etc. This allows exposing issues that may not otherwise be encountered until an end-user actually starts using the application. Import Users from CSV I needed to batch import users into WordPress but I didn't find any plugin which would import all the user data fields as well as user meta. This plugin allows you to import users from an uploaded CSV file. It will add users with basic information as well as meta fields and user role.
▶ How to make a bootable OS X 10.10 Yosemite install drive Back in the day when we bought OS X on discs, as long as you kept that disc, you always had a bootable installer just in case. Modern, downloadable versions of OS X create a recovery partition on your drive, but it's always a smart idea to make your own bootable installer drive too. I recommend making one for Yosemite, on an external hard drive or USB thumb drive, for many of the same reasons I recommend making a bootable Mavericks installer drive: If you want to install Yosemite on multiple Macs, using a bootable installer drive can be more convenient than downloading or copying the entire installer to each computer. If you want to erase the drive on a Mac before installing Yosemite, or start over at any time, you can use a dedicated installer drive to boot that Mac, erase its drive, and then install the OS clean and restore whatever data you need from a backup. And if your Mac is experiencing problems, a bootable installer drive makes a handy emergency disk.
6 free mobile device emulators for testing your site Webdesigner Depot The percentage of all web usage that comes from smartphones and other mobile devices is growing, and it won’t be long before mobile internet users overtake desktop and laptop users in terms of web traffic. So it’s a cardinal sin to ignore mobile users when you’re developing a website. One of the most important things you can do to make a website mobile-friendly is to test it on multiple smartphone and tablet platforms. SB Welcome Email Editor I thought that the WordPress Welcome Email to both the Admin and the User were very un-user friendly so I wrote this plugin to allow admin members to change the content and headers. It simply adds a new admin page that has a few options for the welcome email and gives you a list of hooks to use in the text to make the email a little more personal. Added support whereby the admin notification can be turned off or a different admin (or admins, support for multiple recipients) can be notified. Plenty of hooks to make the emails as customisable as possible. A reminder email service has now been added whereby the admin user can send a reminder to any particular user. This can be the original welcome email or a separate template configured on the Welcome Email Editor settings page.

Using a load test plugin to limit the number of tests run in a load test - Bill Barnett's blog Normally the number of iterations of the inner tests (usually web tests and unit tests) run during a Visual Studio Team System (VSTS) load test is determined by the duration of the load test. However, some users which to control the number of inner test iterations exactly. There is not direct support for this in VSTS, but it can be accomplished using a load test plugin. Below is an example of a load test plug-in that does this. Instructions for using it are included in the comments. Note that if the load test is run on a test rig with more than one load test agent, the number of test iterations specified will be run on each of the agents.

These are small pieces of code that are under the control of your tests. By isolating your code for testing, you know that if the test fails, the cause is there and not somewhere else. Stubs and shims also let you test your code even if other parts of your application are not working yet. Fakes come in two flavors:

Microsoft Fakes Framework in Visual Studio 2012 In Unit Testing/Test Driven Development (TDD) Isolating dependencies, sometimes referred to as “mocking objects” or “faking objects” is a norm. There are many books/articles that have been written on this topic. There are also great frameworks out there, which allow us to isolate dependencies without having to use any hand written mocks/fakes. Visual Studio 2012 new Fakes framework takes faking/mocking objects to a new level. In this article, I will explain the features of Visual Studio 2012 Fakes framework.

The Fakes framework can be used to shim any .NET method, including non-virtual and static methods in sealed types. Additionally here is Wikipedia’s definition of Mock Object for reference In object-oriented programming, mock objects are simulated objects that mimic the behavior of real objects in controlled ways. A programmer typically creates a mock object to test the behavior of some other object, in much the same way that a car designer uses a crash test dummy to simulate the dynamic behavior of a human in vehicle impacts.
