I went to the afternoon sessions (Swim meet in the morning).
Chad Myers led an interesting "Fishbowl" session on adapting TDD in your team.
Jimmy Bogard gave a good presentation on mocks and stubbing. I really liked the new testing syntax made possible by extension methods:
bool result = foo(a,b,c)
This seems more natural than using the "Assert.IsTrue(result);"
Ben Scheirman showed all the cool features of ReSharper that he uses. I liked one of his side comments about keyboard shortcuts: "If I'm using the mouse, I've failed."
Other miscellaneous items:
- Recommended Books: Lean Thinking / The Machine That Changed the World / Toyota Way
- Rhino Commons is a helper class for NHibernate
- Demo tools: Jedi show keyboard strokes, Zoomit magnifies areas on screen
- C# has new ReadOnlyCollection
Austin Code Camp was well attended. Join us next year.
(Going to the camp reminded me as software developers we have to be constantly learning - reminds me of the urban myth about sharks having to swim or they die.)
