Nicholas Becker ideas for an ever changing field

For anyone interested in some really all-encompassing agile training in the Austin area, there’s a fantastic one coming up from March 24-26th at Headspring.  All the topic details, schedule and registration info are here, but just a rough outline of the topics covered:

  • object oriented programming
  • SOLID principles
  • design patterns
  • dependency injection
  • team design on whiteboard
  • IDE tools and quickly navigating a codebase
  • Test-Driven Development
  • mocking
  • pair programming
  • refactoring
  • pain driven development
  • Domain Driven-Design
  • ORM
  • contributing to open source projects
  • harnessing the community for extreme growth and continuous learning
  • foundations of Agile
  • Continuous Integration:
    • the "check-in dance" to ensure that code to be committed to a repository does not conflict with existing code or unit tests
    • to make code repositories automatically integrate with build scripts to build the most current source to staging servers
    • to make code repositories automatically integrate with build scripts to alert teams if any developer commits code that breaks any of the project's unit tests (thus keeping the source code free of bugs)
    • to write deployment scripts to make separate databases from the project's schema at individual developer/pair-programming workstations and well as production and staging servers
    • to write deployment scripts to roll out database changes as they occur at individual developer/pair-programming workstations and well as production and staging servers

I work directly with the instructor Matt Hinze who’s been doing this for a while now, and can attest to how awesome this class is -- he’s really on the ball with this stuff.
