The day is over. The bar is still going strong… and no smoke tonight!!! But I’m done. I spent enough dough (my own) and my boss and I had enough conversation that it was time to call it a night. We have a long drive home tomorrow… after two more sessions in the morning.
There were some good sessions today. Jared Richardson is an amazing speaker. His talk on credit card debt relating to software development is amazing. It actually goes so deep as to make you think about your life choices which enhances the thought about how it pertains to technical debt. I would recommend it with my thumbs and big toes up to anyone. Probably one of, if not THE, best sessions of the conference… and I almost didnt go.
Scott Davis delivered on refactoring to testability and mocking. A couple of topics I hold near and dear to my heart, but still wanted to see them presented by someone who can do it right.
I got to have a conversation with Neal Ford about some agile adoption strategies I have been contemplating. He gave me some good ideas so I’m excited to give them a try.
All in all it was a great day.
More to come when I get some rest in… 🙂
