I attended SD West in Santa Clara a couple of weeks ago. For my
own memory down the road, here are the sessions I attended:
- Building Adaptive Mobile Applications, a commercial hands-on
session offered by Intel.
- Refactoring to Patterns, by Joshua Kerievsky.
- Better Software — No Matter What, by Scott Meyers.
- XP Requirements Management, by Robert C. Martin.
- Code Smells, by Joshua Kerievsky.
- Lean Software Development, by Mary Poppendieck.
- User Acceptance Testing: the Essentials, by Jennitta Andrea.
- What’s Wrong with Projects? by Mary Poppendieck.
- Design Principles, by Robert C. Martin.
- Got Quality? (A Practical Look at Excellence in Software
Development), by Chuck Allison.
- FitNesse for Acceptance Testing, by Robert C. Martin.
- A Fireside Chat with Joel Spolsky.
- Web Bloopers: Avoiding Common Design Mistakes, by Jeff Johnson.
- Stemming the Offshore Tide, by Robert C. Martin.
- Be a Good Scout — Secrets for Evaluating Development Tools,
a panel discussion.
I’ve highlighted the three sessions that really impressed me a lot,
though a lot of the others were quite good, too. Still, these
three sessions stand out, and have given me a lot of ideas that I
expect to implement. More on that in a future post.
