The Testing Planet July Edition
Some fantastic content in the July edition of the The Testing Planet magazine including “The art of bug reporting”, “Priority vs. Severity…”, “Alternative Paths for Self Education in Software Testing”. This is must-subscribe publication for anyone connected to the field of Software Testing.
SmartAssembly from Redgate is a .NET obfuscator for .NET developers that also provides Automated Error Reporting. When end users encounter an error with your application a complete error report is created that can be sent back to you. The report contains full stack trace and local variables values so you can diagnose in-the-field application issues. Great product and a solid replacement for the now defunct http://xenocode.com (what a way to kill something off!).
