OpenCover UI – Unit Test Code Coverage

A little sideline post to tide everyone over (as I’m still working on the Alexa piece, which I want to do proper justice to when it’s released). I’ve been messing around with a few rough and ready projects and wanted to get an idea of how to dig into code coverage, in respect of Unit […]

Work & Sickness

Evening all, Just as I was getting into the swing of things with a few quick fire posts I ended up needing to focus on work due to some important project pieces. Coupled with that, I caught a dreaded man-flu style bug over the weekend which broke me a little this week. Posts on Alexa […]
