Software Craftsmanship Round Table (WEDNESDAY)

This is our monthly software craftsmanship round table to discuss technology, practices or whatever else takes our fancy.

If you're using some new technology you think others would be interested in, if you've got a design or some code you'd like to discuss, if you'd like to discuss a specific practice, a problem you are having at work or you'd simply like to see what others have got to say - come along and join in the debate.

How does it work?

We ask people to suggest topics for the discussion. After the topics are suggested, we take a vote and the most voted topics get discussed. We normally split into groups of about 10-12 people. All topics are suggested and chosen on the evening.

This is an informal session, you don't need any particular experience and you don't need to have suggestions for topics - just bring yourself, an open mind and your opinions.

The first 15-20 minutes will be devoted to lightning talks. So if you've got a cool demo, some new technology or just something you think the group might find interesting, controversial or just plain funny, bring it along and share with the group! Don't worry if you've never given a lightning talk before - this is a great opportunity to give a talk in a friendly environment. We'll have a projector and a whiteboard and all talks are restricted to no more than five minutes.

There will be pizza and drinks. There's only room for limited numbers at this event, so if you change your mind please update your RSVP so others can come.

    It was nice meeting the group and the individuals I talked to yesterday.

    I did a quick lightning talk at this event about a code improvement journey using curry and curry-like methods.

    If anybody is interested the blog post I based the talk on it is located at . There are also links on that post to my GitHub for the (MIT licensed) code and also over to Hugh FD Jackson's blog who created a traditional `curry()` function for JavaScript.

    Thanks again

    Even thought my proposed topic ("Coding for kids") didn't make the cut, I thoroughly enjoyed the discussion on TDD. Very insightful.
