December Session – Coding Dojo

Thanks to everyone for their presentations in the previous session. Since then I’ve had a good chance to have a play with PowerShell and Psake (which are both cool). I still haven’t had a chance to install AutoMapper but it seems more and more likely every day on my current project. There were some interesting side discussion around Event Driven Architectures and Do vs. Done that I’d love to see expanded upon in a later session. Finally, I continue to be blown away by the power and flexibility of WPF. I look forward to being able to build an MVVM project in WPF sometime in the future.

The next session is Wednesday 9th December and it will be another Coding Dojo session. If you haven’t come to one before it basically consists of us, as a group, solving some well defined problem using Test Driven Development. Here are some rules:

  1. One pair is "driving" at any given time
  2. One of the pair has the keyboard, the Driver, the other is the Navigator
  3. When the tests are all passing then the audience may suggest refactorings/tests
  4. When the tests are failing the audience may only suggest fixes.
  5. The Driver or Navigator may request silence while the tests are failing.
  6. Driver/Navigator should swap frequently (like every 5 minutes) with someone in the audience. Be prepared to jump in.
  7. Have fun, be nice **

Everyone is welcome, attendance is free.
