Fostering Software Craftsmanship

Track: Software craftsmanship, friday 13:10 - 14:00

Software Craftsmanship is sometimes dismissed as being only for individual developers and/or boutique software shops. However, the practices and principles of craftsmanship are just as vital and valid to large organizations as individuals. In this talk, Cory will cover practices and approaches for adopting craftsmanship in your organization. We'll cover specific exercises, organizational challenges, and how to influence both organizational and team-level acceptance.

Delivering What's Right

Track: Agile, thursday 10:15 - 11:05

'In Programming, the hard part isn't solving problems, but deciding what problems to solve'. In this famous quote, Paul Graham sums up one of the great challenges of software development, namely, how do we pick the right problem to solve, the right feature to deliver, the right bug to fix? In this session, Cory Foy will cover what it means to deliver the right thing, and how to use several models to quickly filter the features in your backlog into a sharply focused profit-making machine.

Koans and Katas Oh My!

Track: Software craftsmanship, tuesday - morning

The cornerstone of the top software developers is their focus on knowing their tools and frameworks and understanding ideas from other languages. But how do you do that when you have so much else to do? In this workshop we'll spend a few minutes discussing Code Katas and Koans, and then we'll go hands-on discovering ways to increase your Java, C# or Ruby Fu in addition to learning new languages like Clojure, Haskell and others. Bring your laptop and favorite IDE!
