Are you curious of how an expert would build a dynamic data-driven web app from the ground up? Aloha.rb's first meetup of the new year is a community viewing and discussion of "Build an App With Corey Haines" episode 1!
Corey (http://coreyhaines.com/) is an internationally recognized speaker. His areas of expertise are coding practices and Software Craftsmanship. He is developing a video series that is a walk through of his approach to building an app. After the showing we'll followup with a discussion. It should be interesting to software developers of any language.
Excerpt from the first episode's description:
"In our first episode of "Build An App With Corey Haines" (lovingly referred to as BAWCH), we'll discuss just this question: where do we start. We'll talk about the fuzzy idea of "business value" and introduce a technique called Feature Support Diagrams. When finished, FSD diagrams literally have arrows pointing to the feature where you should start. And once we've chosen, we'll begin building. We'll look at creating our first two scenarios using Cucumber, then making them pass using a "Programming by Wishful Thinking" outside-in style of development."
Hope to see you there so we can BAWCH!!!
