DCI Injection and Avoiding Rejection

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 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.

A big thanks to Zendesk for hosting us, along with sponsoring food and drinks.

And also thanks to JetBrains for the RubyMine IDE licence prizes.

    Very informative. I am a novice developer, it's very interesting to explore interesting technologes directly at the beginning of learning.

    Great talks last night. Thanks Alan and David. Hmmm... DCI added to the todo list of things to add to my Ruby toolbox!

    Great talks might try some DCI in my next project. Seems to make sense though!

    Hi all, as we have limited places can you please update your RSVP if you are not planning to attend so that waitlist people have a chance to get a place?

    (If you are on the waitlist but no longer wish to go please update your RSVP too).

    Looking forward to a great evening!

      Thanks for all the diligent RSVP updating everyone! Really appreciate it.

    Damn! Another interesting meeting that I can't go to :-(

    June 11, 2015

    • Jonathan O.

      That would mean buying plane tickets, disappointing the wife, and all for a meeting, where they only have food that would kill me. Tough choice!

      Hope to see you soon, Jonathan!
