[COURSE] Sandi Metz is coming to London!

Hello lovely software craftsmanship people:

So in case you weren’t aware, we at Kickstart Academy have got Sandi Metz coming over to teach her Practical Object-Oriented Design classes later this month and early next month in London.

You should be there because:

* Sandi has lots of Smalltalk and Ruby development expereience
* She’s one of the most experienced and best object thinkers we know
* She’s an amazing teacher

Check out the podcast we recorded last month here for a taster: http://tooky.co.uk/kickstart-academy-podcast-with-sandi-metz/

I’m personally really excited about this course, which is the first time it has run in the UK. There are two options: a 3-day from 25-27 June and a 2-day from 3-4 July.

You want to come? Book at: http://kickstartacademy.io/courses/practical-object-oriented-design

The early-bird discounts have all gone: but we’re still doing 5% for three or more seats in one booking (use BULK as the code).

Any questions or follow up info needed, please do let me know.

Thanks all!
Chris

Let's get the "Is TDD dead?" panel to talk about "mocks returning mocks returning mocks"

The panel ( <at> martinFowler <at> KentBeck and <at> dhh) of the "Is TDD dead?" Google Hangout https://plus.google.com/events/cco30ri6dpkej4h4d8mejmat98o have invited spectators to put forward questions for the final part of the debate. 

IMHO It would be a shame if we missed the opportunity to ask them to talk about "mocks returning mocks returning mocks" and the important points so effectively described by <at> garybernhardt in "Test Isolation Is About Avoiding Mocks" https://www.destroyallsoftware.com/blog/2014/test-isolation-is-about-avoiding-mocks. 

If the topic matters to you, how about putting forward your questions, so there is a better chance of the topic being debated? 

To propose a question, just click play on the video you see on the hangout page.

The craftsman I would like to be

Hi,

I'm writing to you because I need your help.

I recently wrote a blog post called "The craftsman I would like to be"- http://www.alexbolboaca.ro/wordpress/articles/the-craftsman-i-would-like-to-be. In it, I describe a few ideal features I would like to grow towards.

The reason I'm asking for your help is to better define these criteria. I have them in my mind, but I'm not sure I fully understood them - if that makes any sense :). I need you therefore to challenge me with:
  • Is anything unclear in the criteria?
  • Are there things you would add? Things you would remove?
  • Can you name other inspiring people that I, we could learn from?
Thank you for your support,

Alexandru Bolboaca
Show your love for code.
Attend I TAKE Unconference 2014, the event where we practice craftsmanship, not only talk about it!

Any software craftsmanship knowledge online assessments (paid/free) out there?

Hi,

I am asking about software craftsmanship assessments, not language or technology knowledge assessments and I am fully aware of limited value of such assessments. I know about (https://www.scrum.org/Assessments/Open-Assessments/Developer-Open-Assessment, although this is half craftsmanship, half scrum) and that Pluralsight has some courses on clean code that can be followed up by an assessment if one has the more expensive license purchased. Are there any others (paid/unpaid)?

Best regards,
grzesiek

Is there a book for journeyman and master patterns?

I like that the "Apprenticeship Patterns" book recognizes three levels of Software Craftsmanship. This allows me to place my knowledge into a category and helps me focus on 'less than everything'. I also like the way the book has been written as I could create a list, monitor my progress, revisit chunks and keep myself from being overwhelmed by focusing on a single item at a time.
  • I am wondering, are similar books available for journeyman and master? 
  • Is anyone working on books like these?
  • Are there other resources that fulfill a similar purpose?
