This Week at Skills Matter: 10 – 14 March 2014

Here’s what’s coming up at Skills Matter this week!



Alberto Brandolini, an independent software development consultant and trainer, will be with us to take a different approach on discovering domain complexity which will in-turn help our teams to understand, frame and master the problem and solution space. An In The Brain talk which will enhance collaboration with the domain experts and the stakeholders, while bringing some fun!

The London Ruby User Group are back again, this time armed with three speakers, Andy Appleton, Derek Hill and Ismael Celis. Make sure you join if you are interested in developing your marketing skills as a developer, eager to learn more about modelling state and recording state changes, or want to discuss custom-made infrastructure components, delivered by real experts sharing their own experiences.

London Clojurians will be delving into the underlying principles behind propagators using the extensible “proaganda” Clojure library. Join Thomas Kristensen and James Henderson for two talks that will take you through the basic concepts from setting up a cell network to performing backtracking.


Victor Grazi will be joining the London Java Community to take a look at a series of animations that visualize the functionality of the components in the java.util.concurrent. A presentation using interactive animations to illustrate the components, which leads to some surprising results.

London Ajax will be joining us again this week, exploring the architecture of GenieConnect. Steve James will be discussing its’ usefulness as well as its’ drawbacks, which over the years has become a developed model-centric Javascript framework for building Single-Page web applications.


Functional Londoners will be armed with real world examples in F#, to discuss a no jargon, no maths, no prior F# experience necessary talk on ways you can use types as part of a domain driven process. Scott Wlaschin will run through statically typed functional programming languages that encourage a different way of thinking about types.
