Our birthday session ‘Introducing Extreme Programming’ has been postponed until July’s meetup. Kevin Rutherford will instead be running “Telling, not asking.”

It’s our birthday – comes around quick doesn’t it? Now 3 years old XPManchester is almost ready for pre-school. We’re potty trained, walking, talking and well past the dribbling stage. Well, most of us.

As is tradition for our birthday we’re running an introductory session, covering the basics of XP. This year, we have a couple of twists.

First, we’re running this session in conjunction with Manchester Girl Geeks.

Secondly, as well as explaining the basics of XP we’ll also discuss how to introduce the practises to your organisation or to your boss (Introducing XP, geddit?)

This is a (free) ticketed event again, please grab yours from Eventbrite.

Our next XpMan is on software architecture with Chris Carroll & Mark van Harmelen

Part I: What is (the point of) software architecture?

A brief flight through software architecture for agile teams. We’ll slow down for the bits that you don’t always learn (or I least I didn’t, YMMV) as a developer, most notably:
  • defining, calculating and generally getting a tangible grip on software qualities / NFRs like reliability, resilience, availability, performance, testability, maintainability, security, usability, efficiency and other such not-always-well-defined things.
  • a brief history and what’s trendy or useful in architectural views & viewpoints
  • Calculating, estimating, validating, quantifying, risk-assessing and generally putting numbers on everything.

Part: II Discussion

When do you pay attention to architecture and get the drawing board out? For what scale of system? Using what notation? What happens to your architectural descriptions over time?

Common Bar from 5pm
Talk starts at 7pm in Madlab (but open from 6:30)

We write software for people, yet we fill our code with clever abstractions and helper methods. What if we wrote code that reflected the problem domain? Surely that’d be a good thing?

This talk is an introduction to Domain Driven Design, which is a set of building blocks to write more domain focused software. There will be a practice session too, but laptops are not required.
