A Big thanks to everyone who came to my presentation tonight on nUnit:

In his mission to become a great developer, Dave will entertain you with 'How nUnit Inspired an Awesome Rock Song'.  Dave will demonstrate the time and heartache savings (which allowed time and energy to do the music).

Tools and technoloiges (ab)used in this talk will be:  C#3.5SP1, VS2008 Express, PHP, JSON, MySQL, and nUnit.  I'll demo the Awesome Rock Song too!

If you've heard of unit testing, this presentation is for you.  Bring your laptop and take away your first working unit test project.  Your future development projects will get easier with testing.
