UPDATE: Who Writes Nester?

Earlier I wrote:

Does anybody out there know someone who works on the .NET mutation testing tool Nester? I've scoured the Interweb and can't find a name or a contact email address for the project

I'm gearing up to do a fairly major editorial treatment on mutation testing. I've used Jester before, and an older version of Nester.

I want to do something that's completely up to date for Visual Studio 2008 if possible, but there's currently only support for 2005.

If you know of anyone who's working on Nester, or you are working on Nester yourself, please get in touch as I'd like to find out as much as I can.


I am such a silly billy! I met the guy who wrote Nester in St Petersburgh. He's called Andrew Zaikin. I was helping a client select a development partner out there and vetted developers and architects at his company, Exigen. (They were selected, by the way. We saw several companies and it was no contest. Plus, they took us to an actual restaurant for lunch, which helps. The waitress, by the way, was astonishingly beautiful. Indeed, there were a disproportionate number of staggeringly beautiful women in St Petersburgh. Anyway, I digress...)

Thinking about it, he told me he wrote Nester. Well, duh!

Heck, I was very tired and the women were very beautiful...
