As that glorious Irish summer we were promised kicks in, we're back at Zendesk to cast some light on two exciting topics...
The DCI Architecture - A New Vision of Object-Oriented Programming: Alan Quigley from FundCalcs.com talks about avoiding spaghetti code by using DCI to encapsulate behaviour for scenarios. Hear about mapping end user mental models, injecting roles into objects at runtime and separating system behaviour from the domain model.
Lessons from Both Sides of an Interview Desk: David Tuite from LegitScript talks about the recent 6 month period when he went from being a fresh-faced, first-time job candidate to interviewing his own candidates on behalf of the company that hired him. There'll be tips on CV writing, negotiating, performing well in technical exercises and a bunch of other skills that can help you interview better and make more money.
