Where Will Jon Be in Fall 2017?

Do you enjoy conferences and workshops? Here’s my conference schedule for this fall:

October 7–8: Intro to TDD (non iOS) in San Jose

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.

October 25–26: TDD Workshop in Seattle

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!

October 27–28: Swift by Northwest

The intimate traveling conference CocoaConf has stopped traveling. It’s roosted in Seattle, and taken on a new name. I’m honored to be included in the launch of Swift by Northwest!

My session will be on the SOLID Design Principles. But I want to try something a little different this time:

  • No slides. Live scribbling instead.
  • Not a “presentation,” but a seminar. There will be discussion.

I think it’ll be a lot of fun. From our shared experiences, we’ll all become better software designers.

About the author

Programming was fun when I was a kid. But working in Silicon Valley, I saw poor code lead to fear, with real human costs. Looking for ways to make my life better, I learned about Design Patterns, Refactoring, and Test-Driven Development (TDD). Programming became fun again! I've now been doing TDD in Apple environments for 18 years. I'm committed to software crafting as a discipline, hoping we can all reach greater effectiveness and joy.
