To do, or not to do unit testing is not the question. You're way off just questioning it.

Story
Tagline
Gadgeteer, enthusiast and mobile technology advisor. MS MVP awardee for device software development.
Introduction

Gadgeteer, enthusiast and mobile technology consultant. Microsoft MVP for device software development.

I’ve got a passion for software, development and mobile gadgets that has followed me for several decades!

I think it’s a privilege to be able to work with something i consider to be my favorite activity (when not being with my family that is… ).

Throughout my career I have designed and developed a wide range of software systems. Among these are one of Norway’s first content management systems and B2B systems for telecom carrier NetCom and their chain of resellers long before the term B2B became common. I’ve  also been the lead architect in the design specifications of the national food, safety and tracking system built for the Norwegian food and agriculture department but for the last 6 or 7 years my primary focus has been mobility. How people use mobile technology, What can be done and development of it.

I've has taught evening classes on Windows Mobile development with C# at the Norwegian School of Information Technology in 2009 and took the the initiative to start the first and only Windows Phone based developer community in Norway early summer the same year. WPDC (Windows Phone Developer Community) is now 160 participants and growing with quarterly meetups about mobile development.

In July 2010 I was awarded Microsoft MVP on Device Application development from Microsoft, and got re-awarded in July 2011.

In October 2011 i resign from my job at Creuna AS. My primary work functions at Creuna AS was to be a senior advisor on mobile trends, technology and concepts for consumer and the enterprise. Feeling that i was lacking the drive and support of the management in building Creuna as a market leader in consumer mobility, i decided to part and start my own company to create just that for myself. 

As many others i maintain and have a blog. Mine is about mobile technology and development. There is an english one, and a norwegian blog, basically the same content... 

Bragging rights
Have a 10 year old son named Sebastian, and a one year old daughter named Snø (Snow).
