What we're about

The San Diego .NET User Group is the premier .NET resource in the San Diego area. Our mission is to facilitate education and knowledge exchange among developers, architects and managers with an interest in Microsoft's .NET and related technologies. With our SIG and Main meetings, we will host an estimated 50 events every year. We are a world-class user group, featuring world-class events and speakers.

We are an all-volunteer, non-profit .Net User Group. We do not charge any money to attend any of our meetings. We host multiple meetings each month. You can get more information about our group on our website - http://www.sandiegodotnet.com .

We are entirely self-funded. Our only means of supporting the group is through optional donations by you - Our Members. If you are getting value from the User Group and you can afford we ask that you support us with a $50 annual membership. You can sign up for membership here - https://www.123signup.com/event?id=ybkmr

"Testing for devs. Let’s create better code!" with Paul Whitmer & David Kennedy

Testing for developers. Let’s create better code! ======================================================================= Writing code and developing software is fun, but how do we know that our software is actually good - that it behaves as expected? We test it! In this talk, we'll go over how to get the most out of the code that we write by testing it. We'll cover different types of testing, such as unit testing, integration testing, stress testing, and fuzz testing, as well as provide some demonstrations. Agenda ======================================================================= 6:00 PM - 6:25 PM - Pizza and Networking 6:25 PM - 6:40 PM - Opening Remarks 6:45 PM - 8:55 PM - Presentation & QA 8:55 PM - 9:00 PM - Raffles Networking Game ======================================================================= Part of the goal of the User Group is to promote networking among the members. So I am challenging everyone to meet new people. When you get your pizza, I encourage you to stay in the building lobby and talk to at least two people you have never met before instead of going to sit down in the auditorium About the Speakers ======================================================================= About Paul Whitmer – He is a senior developer at BD with 6 years of professional development experience.
