For those like the sound of predictive computer bug-squashing, you might want to give Armadillo a try.
Armadillo is a tool that runs in the background and analyzes your code and flagging lines that need to be corrected. It also follows you as you test the code and creates a safety net which then protects your work from regression bugs.
This handy tool creates validation scenarios that are incessantly verified as you modify your code. Armadillo pinpoints a bug so you can debug the code without running the whole app.
The best feature of the tool is when the software learns more scenarios, it gets to prevent more bugs. Armadillo will show you unverified code so you can add validation scenarios yourself as well.
Armadillo works on Windows and can be used with Visual C# on Visual Studio 2010 to prevent bugs in WPF, WinForms and Console applications. ASP .NET and SharePoint scenarios protection is coming soon for the web app support.
For those interested, you can get a 21-day free trial, or you can purchase for $25 each month. Commercial licenses, ideal for .NET shops, are $299 plus a $99 for an annual maintenance fee.View Article Source »
