Tim tells me about his podcast “Developer’s Journey”. There, he interviews software developers about their career, what is important to them, and more.
I interviewed Simon Harrer at Developer Week 2019 in Nürnberg, where we talked about his book “Java by Comparison”. With this book, you will learn how to write clean and maintainable code in object-oriented languages.
Simon Harrer talks about how to avoid negations in your code…
I interviewed Simon Harrer at the Developer Week conference about his book, “Java by Comparison”.
If your employer asked you do do something unethical or something you would not want to do for any other reason, would you tell them “fuck you” an leave?
What would have to be true so that you could do that?
“Why are good people stuck in bad jobs?”
I read that on a whiteboard somewhere and immediately regretted that I missed that discussion.
Now, I decided to start a short video series around the topic.
In the last 7 videos, I answered these and other questions about the “Red” and “Green” phases of the test-driven development cycle.
Today I want to do a short recap.
I have been at the DevOne Conference Linz this year, and… It’s been a blast.
I have already been at some very well organized conferences, but this one was the best so far. The program, the food, the organization: Everything was very close to perfect.
Here’s what happened, my impressions and some opinions…
When you do TDD, “fake implementations” or “wrong code” are OK, as long as they pass all the tests you have so far.
But when do you stop to fake? When do you start writing “real code”?
There’s a rule that helps you decide: The “Specific / Generic Rule”.
