Including the build number in your assembly version number can be a very useful feature. Using reflection you can retrieve you assembly version number and display it appropriately in your app. Here is how to add a build number to your Assembly Version using TeamCity continuous integration server. AssemblyInfo Patcher TeamCity is a continuous integration server developed by JetBrains. If you are looking at trying a new build server, I highly recommend giving it a try. It should take no longer than a hour or two to install, configure, and build your project. There is a built-in build feature… Read More »Add a build number to your Assembly Version

Want to produce better code and more efficient development group? Start using Visual Studio Online check-in policies within your team project. Check-in Policies are rules you can define at a Visual Studio Online team project which are enforced when a developer attempts to check-in their source code. Note: You must be using Team Foundation Version Control (TFVC) with your project in order to use the check-in policies. Although VSO now supports Git as a version control system for your team project, check-in policies are not supported. One of the main reasons I started using check-in policies was to enforce associated… Read More »Visual Studio Online Check-In Policies
LeanKit and Visual Studio Online are both two great tools. Why not use them both? Here is a guide to integrate LeanKit and Visual Studio Online. Although Visual Studio Online (and Team Foundation Server) provide a task board to visualize work items and flow, I prefer to use the fully customized Kanban board by LeanKit. Thankfully, I found out that LeanKit has created an Integration Service, which is available on GitHub. My goal is to manage all work items within LeanKit, however I want to be able to associate Visual Studio Online Work Items to changesets (during checking) within Visual Studio. (LeanKit/VSO ChangeLog how-to coming soon!) Overall… Read More »Integrate LeanKit and Visual Studio Online
