On Thursday, Microsoft hosted a day of Patterns and Practices at the Tampa office. We happened to be there for some unrelated meetings, so I ended up staying for the festivities. Besides finally getting to meet David Hayden in person, Ron Jacobs was down from Redmond to do a talk on TDD in the UI using MVP. This was a topic very near and dear to my heart, and it was really great to hear Ron discuss it in the very same way that I bring to teams.
The reason I was happy is that Ron primarily focuses in the architecture space, so while I normally can win over devs, bringing concepts to “architects” seems to be a bit challenging. But when you’ve got the guy who runs ArcCast talking about it, it really helps to win the ideas over.
I think Ron was off to the South Florida Code Camp that’s this weekend. If you are in the area be sure to stop in and see his session!
