I'm a geekette who enjoys playing with new technology for software developers. I work as a Developer Evangelist for Microsoft. My current focus is on Windows Store development for Windows 8.
nPlus1.org is hosting its fourth Architecture Summit on July 31st at the Microsoft office in Southfield, MI. The topic of this summit will be Patterns and Principles.
Session One: Software Patterns Patterns are an important tool to use as architects and developers. They provide a common vocabulary for us to design with, as well as a common approach to a common problem. Come learn about useful patterns, and how to use them in your everyday code.
Session Two: How I Learned To Love Dependency Injection Dependency Injection is one of those scary topics that most developers avoid. It sounds all ‘high-falootin’ and complex. It’s not. Really. We wouldn’t lie. It’s a great way to manage complexity in your system, and a great way to make your system so much more testable. And isn’t that what we all want?
Each session will be followed by open discussions periods. A catered lunch will be provided starting at noon when the welcome time begins.
