DDD Scotland 2011

Well that's DDD Scotland over for another year. Really good line up spreakers this year and it was pretty hard to pick the sessions to go to. This year I went for: -
  • Creating your Own Software Company: A Survival Guide (with Kendall Miller)
  • Asymptotics and Algorithms (with Gary Short)
  • Unit Testing, Test Driven Development and the Walking Skeleton (with Seb Rose)
  • Is your code S.O.L.I.D ? (with Nathan Gloyn)
  • Produce Cleaner Code with Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) (with Gael Fraiteur)
Was hard to pick sessions for this year but my focus this year was around improving code quality and certainly these have given me a lot to think about and more importantly lot to read up on. Now I just need to find time to read up on it all.
One thing I felt this year is that aside from the presenters I was one of the very few that turned up with something with a real keyboard. It was like an android and iphone owners club. :)
