Starting off on the write foot...

...and by that I mean writing tests....

It has been a few frustrating sessions at Dallas Geek Night.

I've looked at a couple of technologies for writing iOS apps (even though I don't yet have an iPhone or iPad).
  • mobl is like a DSL where you can declaratively layout screens and controls and will run in a webkit based browser.
  • MonoTouch is a commercial plugin for MonoDevelop that allows you to write iOS apps in C#
I've also looked at partychapp.

So what is my frustration? Tests or the lack thereof.
When I start to work on a project I want to be able to quickly start writing unit tests.
