I'm new to unit testing and starting out with Roy's book. I haven't even gotten to mocks yet, but I'll be sure to review your answer once I get there.. Just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing something obvious.

comment Is the C programming language still used?
@MatthieuM: Excuse my false accusation; couldn't help recalling Joel's article when I saw you refer to C that way. :)

Lingua Franca? If you say something someone already said, you should quote him.

Helpful answer, but the question was not asking for a choice on a web-programming language.

You guys might be right about .NET documentation, but I've never had exposure to that.
