Do you enjoy conferences and workshops? Here’s my conference schedule for this fall:
Last year, I attended Silicon Valley Code Camp for the first time. This year, I’ll be teaching a session: Intro to Test Driven Development.
This won’t be specific to iOS development. Instead, it’ll be platform agnostic, for anyone with a little programming experience.
This year, it’ll be hosted at the PayPal campus in San Jose, California. My session will be Saturday morning at 9:45. You can’t beat the price, which will be little more than a nominal lunch fee.
Send any programmers you know in the area. Also managers! They’ll get a taste of TDD from someone who’s been practicing it since 2001.Register for SVCC
My one-day TDD Workshop for iOS Developers has been well-received in Verona, San Jose, Chicago, and Indianapolis. This time, it’s coming to Seattle as part of Swift by Northwest.
The last time I taught the workshop (for a company, not a conference), I kept saying, “Wow, there’s so much we can cover. This could easily be a two-day workshop.” So guess what? This time, you can spend two solid days with me, learning Test Driven Development for iOS!Register for Workshop
My session will be on the SOLID Design Principles. But I want to try something a little different this time:
I think it’ll be a lot of fun. From our shared experiences, we’ll all become better software designers.Register for Swift by NW
Will you be at any of these events? Let me know by leaving a note below!
I first experienced the joy of programming in junior high. But on the job, some of that joy was sucked away by seeing code my teammates were afraid to touch. Poor code led to fear, and fear led to our entire team being let go. I began searching for ways to improve code. I stumbled upon the first wiki, which was about Design Patterns, Extreme Programming, and Test Driven Development (TDD). I rediscovered joy on the job. I've now been doing TDD in Apple environments for 17 years. I'm committed to software crafting as a discipline, with the hope of raising you, my fellow programmers, to greater effectiveness and joy.
