Boise Code Camp 2010 Presentations

Went to Boise Code Camp this weekend and it was great!

There were some really good sessions and good discussions on Agile, Scrum and domain specific languages.

I think events like these are important because they help us to zoom out a little and see what kinds of things other people are doing in our field and what companies around us are interested in high quality software.

Code camps are also a great place to get some experience doing presentations and share what you are working on.  Networking opportunities abound.

I presented two talks this weekend.  I am posting the links to those here.

The first presentation I did was on Pair Programming.

You can find the presentation on Prezi here.

We also did a live pair programming session, which I thought went pretty well.  We ran into some of the issues that often come up with pair programming, like being afraid to tell someone you don't like their method name.

The second presentation I did was on Creating an Internal DSL for Automated Functional Testing.

You can find the presentation on Slideshare here.

We went over how to go about creating a good automation framework which fills in the gaps between the business language and technical language.

Thanks to everyone who attended.
