Change is optional. Survival is not required.

revolution_3I love my MX Revolution mouse. It is the most comfortable mouse I have used to date. For me, this is the first mouse that the wireless works without glitches, the scroll wheel has virtually no resistance, and there are a pile of programmable features on well placed buttons. As a desktop mouse, I would suggest anyone give it a try.

As a presentation mouse, however, it did not work so well. The scroll wheel with no resistance would scroll under its own weight causing my slides to advance and back up in a very rapid fashion. This is a great example of a highly desired feature in one context being a complete hindrance in another. Now off I go to  find a device well suited for presentations.

I will be presenting items from the PatternsInTesting series as well as some additional content in the Test Driven is Driving me Insane talk at the Great Lakes .net User Group on 3/18/2009 and at the Northwest Ohio .net User Group on 4/21/2009. This has been a really fun talk so far and I have enjoyed the conversation it generates. Stop by if you can make it.

I will be presenting items from the PatternsInTesting series at the Greater Lansing .net User Group Flint meeting. I was compelled to put this blog series and presentation together to address the pain many organization experience when trying to include automated testing into their development process. The content is based on the insight and lessons learned that I have picked up by experiencing the same transition in multiple organizations. Participants in this presentation will walk away with tools for writing more effective tests and how to better identify issues in tests.
