New article up at

It has been a while, but at last I am back to writing technical articles again. The first one in a while: Guicing Up Your Testing demonstrates how you can speed up and improve your testing for applications that use a lot of slow resources like databases, using Dependency Injection with Guice as a way of replacing the slow resource with a faster alternative. Future articles in this series about Guice will go into better practices generally for testing with Guice. The next one, for example, will cover using Guice with EasyMock. Beyond that, I am hoping to examine how to break up large code building dependencies using Guice and generally use it to improve the architecture of your application.

My Sister's New Enterprise

Just found out that my little sister, Kirsty, has a new website/business called Flower, the PA (Personal Assistant). You can see the new site (which looks very nice) at and if you have any design needs give it a look, she is very good at that sort of thing.
