Flash Builder performance can be increased with the use of JRockit JVM.

Flash Builder 4.6 – Conditional Breakpoints

Wednesday, September 5th, 2012

When debugging an application, in FB 4.6 one can now set conditions on when a breakpoint is activated. This can be very handy when you want to know when a certain condition is met on a piece of logic without having to set up IF statements, traces or debug logs.

Right-click on the breakpoint in the Breakpoint window to set the BP Properties. The conditions are set as shown in the picture, and you can only reference the objects/parameters that are available at that exact breakpoint line.

Unit Testing in C# – TestDriven.net

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

I was using NUnit, but it had to be run from the command line or
as an external .exe.

Just installed TestDriven.net and its much handier. Your tests
can be run by simply right clicking the project and going to Run Tests.

Heres a good editor for creating your own snippets: http://snippetdesigner.codeplex.com/
