Rebecca Wirfs-Brock: Maintaining Your Code Clint Eastwood Style 

Dec 01, 2016 by Madalina Botez in  Announcements

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!

#1. SHARE TOP 5 THINGS YOU DID THAT HELPED YOU GROW & BECOME THE PROFESSIONAL YOU ARE TODAY

Robin:

  • Regular participant and speaker at conferences & local user groups
  • Coaching teams and organizing internal meetups about software development
  • Working with different teams and companies (I’m a freelancer)
  • Ask professionals how they would solve a problem
  • Try to read the whole internet 😉

Andreas:

  • Initiating a conference (SoCraTes)
  • Visiting and speaking at conferences
  • Listening and questioning my own views
  • Working with different teams (during my previous job)
  • Thinking outside the box

 

#2. What challenges will the participants find solutions to during your session at I T.A.K.E Unconference 2016?

Participants will learn about the possible pitfalls and gaps when using mock objects blindly. They will understand that this may lead to decreased safety for refactoring and this weakend trust initiates the need for creating more and more integration tests.
They will see the underlying principles and learn about ways and techniques to escape this trap.

 

3. What else would you like to share with participants

Robin:
I like to talk about different software development approaches. How can we use and maintain software tests from specifications and end-to-end-tests to unit-tests. And I would like to know how other teams share their knowledge and improve the collaboration inside the team.

Andreas:
Don’t be shy. Open your ears and eyes. Listen and ask.
