"As graduate recruiters we are often asked why todays graduates don't know about modern open source frameworks that are used heavily in companies today. Dependency Injection Frameworks, especially Spring, is one of the most common frameworks that is bought into discussion. By attending this event you can learn some fundamentals about the concept behind the framework. It will serve as a great talking point for interviews and will attract attention if you include it on your CV."
"We are always looking at ways to differentiate candidates' CVs; if we can find the best candidates quicker, it makes the hiring process quicker and therefore less costly. Dependency injection as an approach to code design is a massive part of our (and many other companies') design, coding and testing process. Over the last 5-10 years DI has grown massively and is largely seen as an industry standard, and it often leads to other good (and required!) development habits such as automated unit testing. I would certainly put someone to the top of my interview list if they had a grounding in DI, especially if they had used their own initiative and sought that grounding themselves."
"Inversion of Control (IoC) is a valuable paradigm for making software easy to grow, test, and maintain. Almost every organisation with a large code base is using it or moving toward it, and yet universities often gloss over it when teaching good software engineering practices.
"A dependency injection framework such as Spring or Guice makes this very easy to manage by taking control of the object lifecycle for you. A grounding in IoC and DI would put any student or graduate way ahead of the competition."
I hope that helps and hope to see you at the event. Do let me know if you have any questions at all.
