Next week (7-9th September 2015) I will be delivering a talk on "Common problems with TDD" at the SwanseaCon conference in beautiful Wales, UK. It's my first time in Wales at this first-time conference, so I'm really excited to be part of this event. In my session, I'll be talking about Test Driven Development (TDD) and the common pitfalls that companies and developers tend to fall in while using this approach to development. You will get a quick introduction to TDD, what made it so successful and then we'll look into how things can sometimes go wrong. In addition to …[read more]

I’m just back from the attending and speaking at /Dev/Summer which was back in Cambridge this year with lots of great and interesting talks. I really enjoyed being part of this fantastic event and even more so for being able to give a talk about Open Source. The conference was hosted at the Moreland College, which is part of Cambridge university, and I have to admit that the overall venue was very well organized.

I'm just back from DotNetFringe! Before flying to Portland, Oregon, I blogged about how Glenn Block arranged for a free ticket (thanks Glenn!) and helped me organise my first trip to the US in order to attend and speak at the conference.

Yes, everyone agreed that there should and will be a follow …[read more]
./NET/Fringe is almost upon us (12-14 April 2015) and I've been monitoring with envy as the organisers announced the line up a few weeks ago. This new event is a proper celebration of two worlds that used to be so different not until long ago - .NET and Open Source. To understand why .NET/Fringe is so exciting let me quote the description directly from the .NET/Fringe website: .NET Fringe is a new conference focused on .NET developers who are breaking the rules and pushing the boundaries. The .NET platform is more interesting today than it ever has …[read more]
This year, I was fortunate enough to be selected as a speaker for DevWeek 2015 in London. In case you haven’t had the chance to attend or is the first time you hear of this conference, then I would highly recommend you make it your goal to be attend next year. DevWeek is the UK’s leading developer conference with over 100 breakout sessions and 23 full day workshops. The amount of information and knowledge you can accumulate in 5 days is immense and you will, most likely, leave the conference with some great ideas and a buzz about …[read more]
