2009-01-19 - Architecture Chat This Thursday
The Architecture Chat is starting up again for 2009, with the
first one planned for this Thursday, January 22nd 2009, 11:30 am,
Garrisons @ Sylvia Park.
I'm still building a list of topics - here are some initial
thoughts and things that have taken my interest lately - and of
course you can leave a comment on my blog or send me an email/IM
with any topic suggestions you might have:
target="_blank">Lean Software development growing in
support, and the Agile community black lash.
target="_blank">Forth and stack based languages in general.
- Net negative producing programmers. NNPP. Do we need barriers to entry into this
profession, or some tools that can be used to persuade people to
leave? And what's
target="_blank">the cost of NNPP?
- Elitism in software development.
- Aspect Inheritance...
target="_blank">Aspect inheritance in PostSharp 1.5 CTP 2
target="_blank">Deeper Into Aspect Inheritance.
- Windows 7 Beta First Impressions (I've been using it on my
laptop for a few days now... Herding code
just did a podcast on this as well).
- What was good/bad about last year (both in the chat, NZ dev
community and development space in general) and predictions for
- Traditional training for developers - do developers still
attend training courses in NZ, where, what's the value etc.
See you all this Thursday!
BTW - Write-ups of previous meetings, and directions etc. can be
found on the Architecture Chat wiki.
