There’s been many great experts at Skills Matter this week, all superstars in their own right. There was Scrum expert Mike Vizdos, editor-in-chief of JSF Central, Kito Mann, as well as Paul Fremantle and Peter Ledbrook taking the London Java Community with their talks on JVC Cloud.
But the biggest draw was undoubtedly Robert C. Martin — the man known as “Uncle Bob”.
Uncle Bob delivered two very popular training courses — the first his Clean Code Workshop on Agile Software Craftsmanship, the second his workshop on Test Driven Development and Refactoring. If you missed youe chance to learn directly from Uncle Bob on these courses, stay in touch — we hope to be able to schedule some more dates soon.
As if delivering two training courses back-to-back wasn’t enough for Uncle Bob, he also gave a free talk to a packed-out Skills Matter community on “The Last Programming Language”.
Uncle Bob didn’t need any background projections. He didn’t want any slides, or any distractions. Uncle Bob’s talk was to be simply delivered — and he kept his audience in the palm of his hand.
If you didn’t manage to get a place for the talk, if you weren’t able to make it, or if you were in a different country and didn’t even realise it was happening, you can watch the skillscast video of the talk on the Skills Matter website. Just click on the image to be taken to the video — then make sure you are sitting comfortably, as you are not going to want to get up again until Uncle Bob has finished.
