Visual Studio and TDD: Better late than never

After hearing that UML is touted as a “next big thing” in Visual Studio 2010, I must admit I was less than elated. Since I am hardly a “new kid on the block”, I freely admit that I remember that quirky diagramming tool called Visual Modeler that shipped with Visual Studio 6.0. (“Ten years after” already?). Had it been 1999, I guess UML might even sound, well… intriguing.
Fortunately, I recently came across this video:
TDD with Visual Studio
Believe it or not, but 2010 version of Visual Studio should finally provide a lot less friction for TDD developers. It can generate class and member stubs based on client code. More surprisingly, there is an integrated Test Runner that does not “fall apart” (just pick your song!) if you have tests written is some 3rd party unit testing frameworks. (On the video Karen shows executing MbUnit tests with VS Test runner.)
TDD is hardly a news these days, but hardly feels as passé as UML!
