I've scheduled the workshopping night. Read details and sign up at:
When: Tuesday, November 1, 2011 7:00 PM
What: This will be a workshop, a "Drink & Code Session" based on the new book Pro Agile .NET Development with Scrum by Apress.
You can buy the eBook at 50% off so it comes to 17 bucks with the Membership Perk located on the left side of the site!
We will also raffle off a copy of Professional ASP.NET Design Patterns, by Scott Millett, one of the co-authors of the agile book.
We will have more sessions if people want to work on the material together a second or more times.
Hope to see you there!
Books Summary & Topics
This book covers the use of SpecFlow for BDD and other tools, like WaTiN, NUnit, Rhino.Mocks for mocking, mSpec, etc for the building of a blackjack card game in ASP.NET MVC.
It has the reader build a Domain-Driven Design style domain model, build a simple custom CQRS command bus (Command-Query Responsibility Segregation), employs StructureMap for Inversion of Control, and uses an NHibernate infrastructure project for data access.
In doing so,it teaches how to achieve persistence ignorance, clean separation of concerns, loose-coupling and SOLID principles more generally.
It is written as a complete Agile Scrum project experience, including user story development, conversations, agile estimation & planning, source control management and branching strategies, project tracking, continuous integration, and more.
If ever there was a book that puts INTO HANDS ON ACTION IN ONE PLACE everything we've ever discussed in this group over the past 3 years, I believe this is the one.
