Software Engineering 101 Conference Wrap-up

I want to thank the many people involved in putting on such a great conference yesterday.  Over 90 people attended and walked away with tons of great information on OOP, SOLID, code analysis/metrics, and production debugging.

Many thanks go to Jim Holmes for the original idea, and putting together such a great lineup of presenters.

To start the day off right, Leon Gersing talked about the fundamentals of OOP, followed by Jon Kruger‘s SOLID principles presentation.  Then Jim gave a brief presentation of tools for code analysis. Next up, was Scott Walker showing us debugging tools and how to use them in a production environment.  These all lead up to a TDD workshop where we paired up to work on an exercise from Leon.

I can’t begin to express how much I actually came away with from this conference.  If for some reason that you missed it, I can only hope that they put this on again soon.  You’ll benefit greatly by attending.
