I’m speaking at Iowa Code Camp April 30th on unit testing for those who haven’t unit tested before.

It’s at Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, IA, Iowa Hall Room D at 10:30am.

I decided to not over-engineer this site and just get it live. Feel free to leave me a comment for features I should add. If you have a stat you want added, for now, just let me know via Twitter or Facebook and I’ll add your bogus stat.
