10 Reasons Your Software Sucks (and what to do about it)
2015 Denver Road Trip edition! with
Caleb Jenkins,
Software Leader, 6x Microsoft MVP, International Speaker, Wrox Author
   
     Fresh off of the European tour of “So You Think You Can Code,” * we bring you the hit sensation, 10 Practices Every Developer Needs to Start Right Now.
 
     Recently from off-Broadway, you are going to learn some new things and have a fun time learning them! (Seriously, Caleb recently gave this talk at the Microsoft office in New York, right off Broadway). Yes friends, this is the talk that kicked off a controversy at the 2010 Dallas Tech Fest, read the blog, see the slides, then come see and learn for yourself!
     Based on years of consulting and working with some of the largest (and smallest) software companies in the world, these are the 10 practices that if you started doing today, would drastically improve the quality and delivery of your software!
     * Caleb was never in Europe, but it’s still going to be a great session!

Topics hit on:
Object Oriented Principals SOLID Coding
Security Concerns Software Patterns
Automated Testing Source Control - Branching and Merging Strategies
Continuous Integration Agile, Scrum, XP, Lean
Team Dynamics Continually Learning, and more
 
Be sure to hang around afterwards, Caleb will be around to discuss any of the areas from his talk in more detail -- it’s going to be great time!
