Putting the Science in Computer Science with Felienne Hermans

Nov 26, 2014 by Madalina Botez in  Announcements

Most conversations about best practices in software development focus on personal preferences: Vim versus emacs, static versus dynamic typing, Java versus C#. Other domains use research to settle such questions. Couldn’t software development benefit from science as well?

Felienne Hermans, assistant professor at Delft University of Technology, had a very engaging talk at I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2014 about experiments designed and run to answer questions such as:

  • What is the best programming language?
  • Do design patterns help in any way?
  • Is Linus’ law correct?
  • Are spreadsheets code?

Watch her talk @ I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2014 edition to find out the results.

Crafted Design with Sandro Mancuso

Feb 19, 2015

Sandro Mancuso, the initiator of the London Software Craftsmanship Community, wondered how to structure the code so that it reveals not only the architecture but also its features. In this talk, he shows how to better organize namespaces and domain entities, something he called Interaction Driven Design.

Enjoy his presentation @ I T.A.K.E. Unconference 2014 edition. Curious about 2015 edition?

Rebecca Wirfs-Brock: Maintaining Your Code Clint Eastwood Style 

Dec 01, 2016

Rebecca Wirfs-Brock is the object design pioneer who invented the set of design practices known as Responsibility-Driven Design (RDD), the first behavioral approach to object design. She is the lead author of two software design books and design columnist for IEEE Software. By accident, she started the x-Driven Design meme (TDD, DDD, BDD…). Although best known for software design, she is has a passion simply expressing complex requirements and effectively communicating software architecture.

Rebecca shared with the audience how to maintain your code in the keynote address from the first edition of I T.A.K.E Unconference. Watch below her remarks!

 

Code. Craft. Learn. Share. Repeat. Call for Speakers for I T.A.K.E Unconference, 5th edition, is open! Apply here.
