Versions, a native Mac OS X Subversion client

Just bought a license for Versions, a native Mac OS X Subversion client. I've been playing around with Versions in pre-release form and really liked it. I did have some troubles with previous releases reading my 1.5-based working copy, but that seems to be fixed in the 1.0.3 version of the Versions client. I really like the responsiveness of Versions and they have a very clean and uncluttered UI. Previously, I was using SmartSVN. Check it out, I think you'll like what you see.

Interesting Microsoft Research paper on the efficiency and effectiveness of TDD

From cLabs Blogki:


http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/esm/nagappan_tdd.pdf


Case studies done on 4 development teams (three at Microsoft, one at IBM) that have adopted TDD. Results of the case studies indicate that the pre-release defect density of the four products decreased between 40% and 90% relative to similar projects tha tdid not use the TDD practice. The teams subjectively said that they experienced a 15-35% increase in initial development time after adopting TDD. Very interesting paper.

TED iPhone app is very cool

I seemed to have missed the release of the TED iPhone application. If you're into TED, the iPhone app is done very well and the video quality is great. You can download it from the App Store.
