After the summer off we're back at Little Man Coffee for our Autumn Tech Talk event with more great speakers & meeting others in the local Tech community.
Our main speaker is Gavin Davies, a developer and automation engineer who believes that the best way to challenge yourself professionally is to freely share your knowledge with others. He is the author of "Deal With It: Attitude for Coders" and co-hosts the "Never Out Of Beta" podcast. He also co-organises monthly tech meetup Unified Diff and others. He'll be talking:
'Characterisation Tests for Legacy Projects'
Legacy projects with no test coverage. Time to run for the hills? Not necessarily... We will explore the application of characterisation tests by telling the tale of an app that we worked on recently, and how we built in automation, testing, and QA processes from the ground up on a pre-existing product.
For the first speaker of the evening we'll be welcoming back Jamshed Javeed amshed Javed, a heavyweight OO Programmer who has worked for some of the leading software houses in Cardiff. His experience spans many high profile websites including Tomb Raider, Championship Manager and the Royal Navy. He is an expert in LAMP technologies and is now the Lead Developer and Architect for start-up that has built a complex, fully integrated hotel management application.
Jamshed will be talking on:
'Separation of functional and business logic'
As usual Yolk will provide some nibbles & the first drink & you guys will provide the expertise and networking.
