Rockford .Net group follow up

Last night I had the pleasure of making the trip out to the Rockford .Net users group and presenting on TDD/Unit testing.

The group was great, they asked a ton of great questions ranging from  testing, to Mocking and finally about IoC/DI.  If fact there was actually so much dialog and conversation I had to cut the presentation a little short as we were running out of time.

I even think I was able to convert some non-believers (for a lack of a better term) into giving testing a try.  If this is case, then my presentation was a great success.

Towards the end of the night we even had a guest visitor, a little gray field mouse.  I guess he also wanted to learn about TDD and testing.  Actually, given the fact that it was about 10 degrees out, the mouse was pretty smart to find his way inside.  I hope he learned something :)

Thanks again guys.  I would love to hear feedback from anyone that was there that night.  What were your thoughts.

Till next time,

Hi, thanks for visiting us in Rockford.  I'm interested in trying out some of your techniques on something I'm working on currently.  I didn't take notes, so the details are kind of foggy as to what specific tools you recommended.  I recently spent a few minutes playing with mbUnit, but I was having an odd issue, so I didn't put too much effort into getting it working.

If you don't recall our site address, it is at, maybe you could post a few details there in the forum?
