CodeMash Day 1
I just finished up the CodeMash “precompiler” (aka the first optional day).
I went to a TDD session and I spent some time in the Microsoft kitchen, where I also did some TDD work. I am more convinced than ever that TDD is the way to go. I’m not even that good at it yet, and yet it feels so natural, so minimalistic, and so correct.
I also spent some time in a Kanban session, which seems like a useful little tool. I bet every shop has some sort of Kanban already, but they don’t call it that, and they certainly don’t formalize it or recognize the potential.
I also watched a live recording of .NET Rocks podcast, and I think Leon Gersing has officially ushered himself into my personal pantheon of developer demigods. He may come off like a “stick it to the man, maaaan!” type of guy, but if you pay attention, he makes so much sense that it makes me want to grow a beard and wear silly hats. Oh wait…I already do that.
Check out the Twitter hashgroup for CodeMash if you are interested in the goings-on.
