A tale of two cities

Last month I was delighted to be able to speak at the Sydney .NET User Group on “Enhancing .NET Unit Tests”. Thanks to group leader Adam Cogan for hosting a great meeting. If you’re in Sydney or passing through then I’d definitely recommend dropping in. If you can’t get there in person, they also live-stream the user group meetings as well as publish the recordings to YouTube.

NDC Sydney had around 600 submissions for only 125 sessions, so I didn’t feel so bad when I heard my session proposal had missed out. I do think this is going to be one of the biggest developer conferences Australia has ever seen, so I was still really keen to get there somehow. When I was offered the chance to go as a volunteer crew member, I jumped at the opportunity. I’ll work half the time helping at the conference, and the remaining time I’ll be able to attend sessions.

Here’s the recording from my Sydney .NET talk..

But you may not need to watch if you’re going to DDD Melbourne! It’s on Saturday 13th August (a week after NDC Sydney), and I just heard that my session has been accepted! I’ll be presenting “10 tools and libraries to enhance .NET unit testing” – which is going to be quite similar to the talk above, so come along and see it live Smile Apparently DDD Melbourne is a sell-out again, so it should be a great day.

August is going to be a busy month!
