Software Craftsmanship Round Table

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.

    I work on a product that allows people to source control their (SQL Server or Oracle) databases. I'd really like to hear from the person who proposed this topic plus any of the guys who voted for it, even if you use a different RDBMS. Message me through Meetup if you want to chat.

      The product I work on is Red Gate SQL Source Control (http://www.red-gate.c...­). We have sister tools that will handle deployments - SQL Compare will help you with manual deployments, while Red Gate Deployment Manager will do Continuous Deployment.

      Alastair I proposed the topic because I'm putting a proof of concept together. I'd be very interested in talking. I had a brief look at redgate tools but wasn't able to see how it would fit into our way of working. Maybe I've missed something!

      Thank you, Joe! That was definitely food for thought. I hope to see this topic again on the next meetings.

    Shame about the late start, but it was great catching up with people. The discussion on effective team communication was very interesting.

    This is one of accu articles about numbers and precision I mentioned after Tom's lightning talk http://accu.org/index.php/journals/1717 (Why Fixed Point Won't Cure Your Floating Point Blues)

    • Emanuele B.

      Hey Ed, yes we still do Tuesdays but this month it wasn't possible (the now canceled tube strike). Sorry about that.

      February 11, 2014

    • Edward Yue Shung W.

      Ah of course, no problem! Look forward to the next month.
