How do Agile Development practices really work? - Anand Viswanath
What does it mean to work in an environment where customer focus is key and delivery is the cynosure of all energies? How does a developer work in an environment where Continuous Integration, Test Driven Development and Domain Specific Languages are sacrosanct? You will learn what it means to be a hands on developer on an Agile team and gain deep insights of Xtreme Programming practices, which have been religiously followed in ThoughtWorks teams across the globe. The session will also help you understand the practice styles adopted by Agile teams working with different constraints.
Applying Functional Programming approaches in Object Oriented Languages - Mark Needham
Functional programming is 'in' and several of the additions to C# 3 allow us to write code in a functional way. On the other hand with an imperative language like C#, an OO approach is useful for allowing us to break down complex problems into manageable chunks. We start with the basics and look at how complex techniques can be used to simplify some traditional OO patterns. We will also discuss how support for functional approaches came about and take a look at some negative effects of exposing functional ideas in an OO code base.
