Which ChartSyles are available within Microsoft Excel? That was one of my questions when I was creating a tool that creates charts of data. But I couldn’t find a list with all the available charts. It become even more strange when I checked the class property because it state: “An integer from 1 through 48 that represents the style of the chart.” But I found a example online which was using the chart style 301, and that is clearly not between 1 and 48.

Continuous Integration describes many guidelines, but the description is often a bit vague. Therefore, CI practitioners often run into problems, like massive test suites that only slow the development process down or a test suite testing wrong parts of the software. This blog post researches the relation between test quantity and build duration. Finally, some new guidelines are suggested.
A startup always starts with a good idea. A few people got an idea and are so eager about it that they want to give it a chance. After doing some research they find out that the idea, an application, is indeed a one-of-a-kind and it’s potentially sellable. The group starts programming and within two months the first version of the application is released. The community is reacting enthusiastic on the trial version of the software and there are already some buyers. The contacts with the community are good and bugs are fixed almost immediately. Meanwhile, a lot of new ideas are popping up and the application is evolving. The project members are popping champagne bottles and celebrate… too early. In this blog post I will tell you all about continuous integration which will get your software to the next level.
A lot of startups with potential are celebrating their succes too early…
A project I am working on uses the following C# code to compare strings:

Having a healthy application virtualization infrastructure platform involves configuring the App-V client with the appropriate settings. Today there are two main ways of configuring the client, either during the initial client installation process or afterwards.
Benefit of configuring the client during installation is that the client is fully operational in the shortest amount of time and can be used directly after the installation. Configuration can be done through one of the many command line parameters. If command line configuration is not preferred, settings can also be captured in a Microsoft Transform file (MST) and applied to the original installation.
