Axis Centre Open Evening, Weds 6th July, 4-6pm

I received the following message from the Axis Centre in Beeston, Nottingham. They offer a wide variety of technical and e-marketing training courses. I have done a Microsoft training course, an E-marketing and content writing course and a XHTML and CSS course with them over the years and can definitely vouch for their quality. Worth a look for sure although they lost quite a lot of government funding which made the courses prohibitively expensive for someone like me who didn't have a company to sponsor me. 

Take a look! GO DO IT.

Arduino ethernet shield

My ethernet shield arrived this morning from Hong Kong. Looking forward to making a little Arduino based Web server! The price for the shield was only ?5 on ebay including delivery :-) super cheap considering how much they cost a couple of years ago.

My home office upgrade wish list.

My home office is almost due an upgrade. I have been holding off until my youngest daughter is out of her cot as then we can finally dispatch the enormous monstrosity of a cot out from the kids bedroom and the drawers that are in my office can be banished giving me better access to my wonderful whiteboard. My other improvements will be purchasing a new, larger monitor. I currently work from a single 22ich Samsung which just doesn't cut it anymore, I did have two at some point but I can't recall what I did with it. I really enjoy using a touch screen so I think I will go for one of these 27inch Hannspree models that I have used before. I put a lot of hours in at home and whilst I have a reasonable chair I still tend to suffer with some back problems, so my next port of call will be to get a Varidesk for home. It works an absolute treat at work and just lets me switch stuff up when I feel like it. they take a reasonable amount of desk space up but I tend to leave my desk fairly

Specflow

After listening to .Net Rocks with Scott Millett this week I felt a renewed enthusiasm for trying out some BDD. I downloaded Specflow and got straight on with the screen cast they have on their website. The video acts as a good introduction into how to get up and running in Specflow. Interestingly it also gave me a better insight into how bowling works. I have never really thought about it. I normally just wang the balls down the lane until the game is over! Specflow introduces the idea of writing the specification first. It uses a specific language called Gherkin which comes from Ruby land. You will need NUnit installed as well. An example of it is:  [edit: NUnit is what I have used up to now but Specflow is compatible with other testing frameworks aswell.
