    This was a great presentation on starting a web site from scratch using a host of different tools in a short timeframe. I was impressed at the number of facets Mr. Costello got to grips with in developing this project.

    Thanks to everyone who came to last nights talk. Plenty of questions on testing, might be a good subject for another talk! I've put my slides in the files section (click the 'more' drop down on the nav menu across the top and then 'files')
