Welcome to my brain

I’m delighted to be taking part in a In the brain of… session organised by the folks at SkillsMatter. When the SkillsMatter folks actually checked inside my brain and heard the rattling noise, they realised I would need some help, so Liz Keogh – BDD pioneer and project lead for JBehave – will be co-presenting […]

One day DDD track at SkillsMatter

There’s a one day domain-driven design event happening at SkillsMatter this Friday, 19 June in London. I’m not speaking this time so I get to sit back and enjoy some talented folks talking about really applying DDD rather than just theoretical stuff. Eric Evans will be kicking things off at 10am then there are five […]

I’ll be Learning to Learn at the Better Software conference

Next week I’m doing a new talk at the Better Software Conference in Las Vegas about learning models, where I was planning to talk about various learning styles and about how ineffective and systemically flawed most school systems are. Then I read up on Edward de Bono’s Six Thinking Hats model (I’ve linked to Liz […]

JAOO Australia

A friend of mine has a Far Side desk calendar that he describes it as a barometer for how busy he is. Some days he finds himself tearing off a whole bunch of pages because he’s been too busy or distracted to tear one off each day. I noticed a couple of weeks ago that […]

Raising money for Leukaemia Research

Right now I have a whole pile of blog articles backed up that I’m in the middle of writing. This post jumped the queue because it is by far the most important. Leukaemia and other blood cancers are the main cause of cancer death in the under 35s (a demographic of which I am sadly […]

Better Best Practices at ExpertZone Stockholm

Next week I’ll be talking about Best Practices, a current favourite topic, at the ExpertZone Developer Summit in Stockholm. Last year I ran a half-day workshop about SOA and gave a keynote with Erik Dörnenburg about simplicity in software, and this year I wanted to do something a little different. So when I heard there […]

Awesome Acceptance Testing at SPA 2008

I’ve been pretty slack at letting people know about upcoming talks. I could blame workload or burnout or any number of other plausible-sounding reasons, but a lot of it is just down to not prioritising very well. I should fix that. A couple of years ago Joe Walnes and I gave a talk at an […]

Empty rooms

It’s now about two weeks to OOPSLA, where Liz Keogh and I will be presenting a workshop on behaviour-driven development using JBehave. This will be along similar lines to the workshop I co-presented at RailsConf Europe last month. At RailsConf we presented to nearly 200 people, which was about a quarter of the conference attendees. […]

Upcoming events

So it’s that time of year again. I’ve got a number of conferences and workshops coming up, ranging over all sorts of topics. I just popped over to Martin Fowler’s site (I’m doing a talk with him this week) and noticed that he has a much more organised setup than me. All his events are […]

Speaking at Expo-C

I am lucky enough to have been invited to present at Expo-C, a software architecture conference based in Carlskrona, Sweden. The dates are 16th to 19th May 2006. At the risk of dropping names, last year’s conference included sessions by the likes of Rod ‘Spring’ Johnson, Rickard Oberg and Jimmy Nilsson, and this year’s line-up […]
