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.

    Just for reference.. http://www.contextfreeart.org was mentioned during discussion of fun. Haven't tried yet, looks really cool and simple.

    Also webgl is a good fun (http://threejs.org in particular).

    Thanks everyone. It was a great meetup. It was good to meet new people and talk about sensitive and well known subjects such as 'Legacy code & people' what is it, what causes it... probably a good thread to be started || moved to the mailing list.

    The other 2 topics were '...Programming while having fun...' and '...reactive programming...'. Please correct me if these weren't the correct topics.

    As someone mentioned in the retrospective would be a good a idea to document || published what was discussed in these topics, perhaps we can have a thread. Project 365 was a good talk as it doesn't allow us to become 'legacy'. Commit ourselves at least 10 minutes a day to learn or improve a skill and measure our development.

    TeamCity by JetBrains was another good talk. Haven't heard before about this CI which is free for 20 build configurations and 3 build agents. Might be an alternative to your current CI.

    DDD was another great talk. I would like to see a thread about this one :-)

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
