You didn’t have the time or resources to travel last year and regret that you have missed some conferences? Now you can find a lot of complete conference sessions recording on the Web. My title has obviously a little bit of marketing twist, but I share with you a fair and diversified selection of excellent conferences presentations videos. Here is my list “in no particular order” as they say on TV.
This is a keynote given by Ivar Jacobson at Jazoon. One of the most popular buzzwords in software development is agile. Today everyone wants to be agile. That is good! However, being agile is not enough. You also need to be smart.
In this PyCon 2009 talk Ted Leung discusses some of the challenges and opportunities that he sees for Python.
In this RubyConf talk, Adam Keys talks about getting back when coding was more fun and less serious.
During this Agile Roots workshop, Alistair Cockburn made people think about cutting features requests in small pieces.
At the Microsoft’s Mix conference, Robby Ingebretsen presented the fundamentals of interface design for developers.
In this talk at 360Flex, Jonathan Branam gave an introduction to the Flex source code, explaining the class hierarchy, compositional classes and the importance of interfaces
During this Lean Software & Systems Conference session, Karl Scotland introduced the three lean concepts of Kanban, Flow and Cadence, which combine to generate a more pipeline-based approach to software development, as opposed to the typical timebox-based approaches used by more traditional Agile methods.
In this talk at the Google I/O 2009 conference, Bruce Johnson presents the new version of GWT.
GWT 2.0 contains huge improvements, including dynamic script loading, a new catalog of compiler optimizations, and a new approach to hosted mode debugging that promises to revolutionize your productivity.
Java’s appearance at the dawn of the Internet Age helped to propel it to near-instant prominence, and lodged cross-platform virtual machines and garbage-collection firmly into our mainstream consciousness. In Java’s wake, .NET introduced the concept of the “cross-language” virtual machine, and helped to foster a new discussion on the benefits of functional programming. Did Java and C# have an evolutionary advantage over C++, or were they simply “Cool” (the original code name for C# / .NET)?
