SPCAF has landed and received a very warm welcome :)

As some of you might have seen or heard, Torsten and I released a free beta version of the SharePoint Code Analysis Framework (SPCAF). (Read about it here)

Let’s say it like that, the feedback since then was


In less than two weeks altogether already over 550 ppl downloaded it!
(Unfortunately we had to re-publish to the VS Gallery so some of the downloads and great review comments are lost)

Now the first reviews and blogs are coming in, which I would like to share with you:

And many, many others tweeted about it!
Thx guys for the feedback, you simply rock!
Here are my favorites :)

Getting such an amazing feedback we know now that we didn’t waste our time!
Ok, actually we knew that before as we use SPCAF ourselves, but it is always nice to hear it from others :o)

So stay with us, SPCAF will improve even more. The next update v4.0.5 with bugfixes and new rules will come already tomorrow!

Give us feedback to rules by commenting directly in the documentation or through the issue tracker.

Download it directly from the Visual Studio Gallery and follow Torsten, me and/or the new @SPCAF account on Twitter to stay up to date.
