Chuck Norris Welcomes You

 Chuck Norris doesn’t program with a keyboard. He stares the computer down until it does what he wants.

Chuck Norris welcomes you All things need a name. We’ve tossed around a bunch of names for the framework of tools we’ve been working on, but one we kept coming back to was Chuck Norris. Why did we choose Chuck Norris? Well Chuck Norris sort of chose us. Everything we talked about, the name kept drawing us closer to it. We couldn’t escape Chuck Norris, no matter how hard we tried. So we gave in.

Chuck Norris can divide by zero.

What is the Chuck Norris Framework?

@drusellers and I have been working on a variety of tools:

WarmuP - (Template your entire project/solution and create projects ready to code - From Zero to a Solution with everything in seconds. Your templates, your choices.)
UppercuT - (Build with Conventions - Professional Builds in Moments, Not Days!) | Code also at
DropkicK - (Deploy Fluently)
RoundhousE - (Professional Database Management with Versioning) | Code also at
SidePOP - (Does your application need to check email?)
HeadlocK - (Hash a directory so you can later know if anything has changed)

Others – still in concept or vaporware

What’s in a Name?

People ask why we choose such violent names for each tool of our framework? At first it was about whipping your code into shape, but after awhile the naming became, “How can we relate this to Chuck Norris?” People also ask why we uppercase the last letter of each name. Well, that’s more about making you ask questions…but there are a few reasons for it.

Project managers never ask Chuck Norris for estimations…ever.

The class object inherits from Chuck Norris

Chuck Norris doesn’t need garbage collection because he doesn’t call .Dispose(), he calls .DropKick()

Call To Action

So what are you waiting for? Join the Google group today, download and play with the tools.

And lastly, welcome to Chuck Norris. Or should I say Chuck Norris welcomes you…

"People also ask why we uppercase the last letter of each name."

The answer is that ChucK NorriS is so dominant that he doesn't have just one uppercase in each name, he has two.
