    NYC Breakfast Event Update!

    January 15, 2013 Share
    I mentioned earlier that I’m going to be heading up a breakfast event on 1/29 in New York city at the Microsoft office. Due to some schedule changes we’ve had to tweak the first session. Instead of the SOLID talk previously scheduled I will be presenting an Intro to Unit Testing talk. I’ve given this talk many times over the years and I always love doing it. The talk’s in C# using NUnit and JustMock, but the concepts are the same regardless of whatever testing infrastructure you’re using. I hope to see you there! (Why not go register now...

    [Updated: Fixed grammar foul on ‘Tenants’ vs. ‘Tenets’.] 2012 is drawing to a close, and apparently all the worry about the Mayan calendar not extending past today is thankfully misplaced! The ending of a year is a good time for some introspection, and some thinking about what’s in store for the next year.

Keep in mind this list is totally in line with my own very opinionated biases! Whole Team Testing This ...

    India Trip Notes

    December 13, 2012 Share
    12 days. Two user groups, three conferences, two days of training/coaching for a customer, five customer site visits, one interview, several community engagements. I’m pretty sure I’m missing something there, but that’s a fairly accurate summary of my trip to India these last two weeks. Our country manager, Abhishek Kant, lined up an extremely full itinerary (because I told him to!) for my extended trip. We spent a lot of time having great conversations with customers, other organizations, community members, and each other. India’s an amazing place, and I’ll have a post about the more personal aspects of my ...
