Test Driven Development with VS2010


Yesterday I had the pleasure to take part in another Torino Technologies Group’s event, and I talked about “Test Driven Development with Visual Studio 2010”.

I think it was a good event with quite a lot of people, it was also the first “half day” event that we managed and I’m quite sure that we will manage some other meetings soon. Winking smile

So stay tuned! And in the meantime, if you don’t know how to kill your spare time, you could take a look at my presentation.


My Asp.Net MVC’s presentation slides


Yesterday I introduced, or at least I tried to, the Asp.Net MVC to my local community: Torino Technologies Group.

Actually yesterday wasn’t a simply introduction to Asp.Net MVC, but an introductory speech to warm up the community for the following open session: Asp.Net vs Asp.Net MVC, which one could fit better for my applications?

I really hope we will be able to continue this speech next time, cause I feel like we didn’t finish it. Winking smile


A clear picture of the actual situation in Italy…

I don’t know if they did it on purpose. In any case at the picture on the left you can see what I was reading at the home page of one of the biggest Italian newspaper.

This stack of news is really the best summary of my homeland situation now: on a side the cost of life for the normal people is becoming higher, with no particular reason (the fuel price is growing while the oil cost is going down, the service price is becoming every day more expensive despite the fact that the service level is always the same, quite crappy, or going worse) and on the other side the politicians are only concerned about their own problems, talking and talking, arguing with each other without taking care about anything outside the “Palace”.

No comment… Sad smile


Finally.. MonoDroid Open Preview!!!


The Mono guys finally decided to open up the MonoDroid preview to all the people.

MonoDroid, or Mono for Android, aims to bring the Mono VM to Android, the Google’s Mobile Platform.

I really think this is a nice move, so finally all the developer can try to use C# on Android (instead of Java 😉 ).

This is the official post: Mono for Android, and here the installation guide: installation.

Enjoy it! Winking smile
