The Australian Alt.Net Community is Alive

You may have noticed that the URL for this site has changed.  It’s now This is because we now have an Australian Alt.Net community at with new groups starting in Brisbane and Perth over the next month or so.

There’s also a mailing list just for the Aussies, so if you find the fire hose that is the main mailing list to daunting, feel free to converse and ask questions in quieter channels with people in your same time zone.

The community is still growing and it’s your community, so feel free to get as involved as you like and help shape the future.

January Meeting – Practical TDD

Happy New Year, everyone!

I’m sure you all listed doing test driven development as one of your new years resolutions, right? What! You didn’t?! I’m shocked :-)

Well, regardless, come along on this month as Wiryadi Adidharma talks about …

Practical TDD:
- Unit Test guidelines
- Using Dependency Injection for testable design
- Unit testing with NHibernate
- Unit testing with ASP.NET MVC

We’ll also have the usual shenanigans with the monthly news & happenings as well as setting aside a bit of time for a discussion on the state of our profession and how we might improve it (or even if it needs improving in the first place). Make sure you bring your opinions else it’ll be a very short and quiet discussion. I don’t want to have to pull out my “sounds of crickets” recording!
