Quality Counts

This time we're at ITV, looking at the tools and techniques used to maintain quality in functional programming.  Tests, code coverage, type systems ... this matters to everyone building a system for a media company (or any company).

Taking a look at the options, and sharing their experience, will be:

- Malcolm Sparks on 'maintaining quality' from a Clojure perspective

- Dave from Underscore on ScalaTest

- Richard Dallaway from Underscore on types as constraints to remove tests.

These short presentations will be followed by discussion, so bring your ideas and be ready to contribute your experiences and comments.

Food (bar snacks) and drink are provided.

6pm for a 6:30pm start.

Detailed Directions: The Southbank Bar is on the 2nd floor of the London Studios. Sign in at reception (say you are here for the Functional Media event). You get to the bar by going to the 2nd floor, turn left coming out of the lifts, walk left and follow the corridor around and down, keep going down the corridor (it is a long one). You get to the Canteen area. You will see some toilets on the left, the door after the toilets leads into the bar. We will have some ushers to take people from reception to the bar.

    I mentioned a project to a couple of people last night, but couldn't remember the name. I've looked it up now:

    Thanks again to ITV, the speakers and attendees for making it a great meetup last night. Feeling slightly less thankful for the free beers today though!

    Got a feeling the free bar may have gotten a bit much for some of the attendees. I thought trolling was entirely an online phenomenon.

      The troll's the one who changes the tone from intelligent debate to cheap point-scoring. It's a shame, because there were more interesting & respectful ways to make the same point.

      Yeah. And I was far from the only person to think or say so.

    I'm very likely to be after 1830. Will there still be someone on reception?
