In an age where people liquidity is important, we humans need to learn to work together closer and more effectively, just like the hunter-gatherer days. Multiple studies have proven that pairing on tasks reduces the overall time taken and increases the quality of the output. Pair programming has been something developers have been doing in an ad-hoc fashion over the years and picked up a lot of traction in the Agile era. Pairing shouldn’t be limited to just developers and it shouldn’t be limited to just pairs. Two minds are greater than one, three even greater but maybe too many cooks spoil the broth? Three Amigos, Famous Five, Secret Seven.
In this session Georgie (BA) and Kev (DEV) will give their insight into cross-discipline pairing. From a BA with little development experience, and a DEV with little BA experience, this light hearted session will cover the highs and lows of pairing. Pairing can be effective if some simple rules are followed and even the most solitary person will enjoy pairing with others (or at least tolerate). We’ll also touch upon the basics of people liquidity and skills matrices.
ASP.NET sucks. Well it's not that bad, but there is a better way. The Nancy way. For those of you who haven't heard of it, Nancy is a lightweight framework for building HTTP based services and it's a great alternative to the typical Microsoft web stack. In this talk I will give an introduction to the framework showing you how to create a basic application and highlighting some of Nancy's advantages along the way.
