DevTeach stands for Developers Teaching Therefore, It is a conference done by developers for developers. These events have all the elements of an international conference with speakers coming from all over the globe but keeping the values we all treasure from local community events. We pride ourselves in offering the biggest diversity of subjects covered in our various sessions. All our sessions provide presentation material to the attendee and whenever possible, hans-on training. DevTeach is not so much a conference as it is a “developer festival.
BDD / TDD ?
Excellent talk, but summary is wrong
However, there is nothing in this talk about BDD or TDD.
Re: BDD / TDD ?
As developers, we spend an inordinate amount of time writing “glue code”. We write code to transform database rows to domain objects… domain objects to view-models or DTOs… We write code to configure inversion of control containers and wire dependencies together. We write code to style our UIs and respond to UI events. Wouldn’t it be nice if this could happen automagically for us? This session will look at using convention-based approaches using Fluent NHibernate and Castle Windsor to reduce the amount of repetitive code and accelerate application development.
Code examples for download?
Excellent talk. Enjoyed it thoroughly.
Sometimes the code was a bit hard to read though due to the rather low res video.
Is there a chance you could publish the Darth Vader website project online somewhere so myself and other can have the chance of going more in depth with the code?
