This is a short guide how to run Specflow features which use Selenium for interaction with a web site. In our building environment these tests are running in Jenkins. Implementing this you’ll get automated UI-test runner.

The difference between them is whether the repository is considered or not during development of a system. The first camp considers it is worth to have it because […]
Many times I was asking myself what’s better IoC container for this or that project. Their performance is the one side of choice. You can find the complete performance comparison here. Another side of the choice is the simplicity and speed to learn. So I decided to compare several containers from this perspective and took Autofac, Simple Injector, Structure Map, […]

I met not so much company cultures, but quite enough to understand some common rules. Some of them would make your company culture nice and warm, and some would make it opposite.

I’ll describe how this can be solved in two ways. The 1st is a similar to web.config XML transformation. The 2nd one is a workaround for AppVeyor using and approach which is […]
