In last week’s Property Testing with FsCheck, we saw how to write a couple of simple tests to check that an implementation of
.Equals() was correct. We didn’t see what happens when the test fails, nor what we can do to make that failure easier to understand.

I’ve been writing some property tests with FsCheck and to say that the process has been bittersweet is a bit of an understatement. The good news is that writing property tests has successfully uncovered bugs. The bad news is that writing property tests has successfully uncovered bugs.

I have a Surface RT tablet that sees regular use as a consumption device - despite complaints about the so-called app-gap, I’ve been able to find all the applications I’ve needed. Recently, however, I found the device had become sluggish for the first ten minutes or so after signing in - something was consuming much of the available CPU (it’s a quad core device) and drive bandwidth.

I’ve got some integration tests that need to know where their source code lives as they require loading sample files when they run. Hard coding the path into the tests is possible - and I did that for a time - but it’s also fragile and has odd error modes.

There seems to be a lot of hatred for XML. It’s not hard to find blog posts and articles where the author rants about the deficiencies and inefficiencies of XML and promotes the beauty of JSON, YAML, or something else. Is this level of vitriol really deserved?
