My next speaking engagements:
- Webtech Italy on November 10. I will speak on a topic dear to my heart, “Framework-free web programming”. Why do we assume any (web) programming job should start by selecting the framework? My opinion is that what you *really* need is an understanding of the fundamental protocols of the web, and an understanding of object-oriented programming.
- Italian Agile Day, November 19. I will speak about “TDD for web views”, or how to apply TDD directly to the GUI of web applications, rather than avoiding it with tricks like Humble Dialog Box, or substituting it with end-to-end Selenium tests.
- XP Days Benelux, November 25. Together with Antonio Carpentieri I will present a workshop on the Open-Closed Principle Dojo. It’s a way to learn an important principle of object-oriented programming.
Hope I will make it through all of this…
