It’s tonight! Come out if you want to program with peers!
I don’t know. Certainly one can not pick a side, but rather learn the various aspects that come into play into this.
GeePawHill attempts to create common sense.
Only one person RSVP-ed ‘Yes’. Perhaps I should apologize to those who would really like to come out but can not because they are going to the Secret Handshake + NMM Christmas Party, if there is anyone like that I chose the date before the Christmas Party date was announced, and I just stuck with it, so sorry about that!
I look forward to hanging out with Jeff again, and practising the Intro to Scrum presentation!
I really wanted to go to both of those, but because Knockout.js ( the framework with which Amir was going to show us how to build a single-page web app ) has an online tutorial, and because I really enjoyed the first IXDA Winnipeg night, I decided to attend the IXDA event, and I’m glad I chose it.
Both presenters seemed like great thoughtful guys, and I will share my favorite idea with you ( loosely quoting ):
If you develop software to solve a problem you have, you can yourself make all the decisions for how the software should work, therefore largely reducing the amount of requirement eliciting you have to do.
Probably a lot of software development contexts do not have this luxury, but I still think it is an interesting ideal to strive for, and if software development becomes as ubiquitous skill as some predict, the context of developing software for a problem you already have will be more common.
