Dev Discussions are recorded conversations between web-application developers as we discuss relevant topics. We're experimenting heavily with format so expect episodes to vary wildly.
I had the great honor of sitting down with Thomas Van Den Berg, the creator of the video game Kingdom to discuss how he approaches programming, architecture, deployment, and other technical aspects related to building his fantastic strategy game.
James O'Brien takes some time out of his day to discuss Cynefin, a model for understanding and acting upon complexity as well as anti-patterns in communication.
Meta analytical thinking and communication are so fundamentally important to automating processes (creating software) that it was nice to get the chance to discuss them.
Mitchell and I discuss our experiences implementing Event-Sourcing in production applications. We discuss every moving piece and describe how it works, why it works that way, and whether or not we're happy with it. See the show notes for more information.
Shawn and Matt have a conversation about their game development projects, development tools, design patterns, and more.
Shawn speaks to two consultants, Mathias Verraes and Ross tuck, about Domain-Driven Design (skipping the introductory parts). We discuss temporal modeling, functional modeling, process modeling, and much more.
I talk with Matt Stauffer about learning programming languages and functional programming.
I talk with Matt Stauffer about Event Sourcing.
I talk with Matt Stauffer and Dan Sheetz from the web-agency Tighten about what developers should know about business.
Ross Tuck, Jesse O Brien, and I discuss the command bus and application service layers. Just as a heads up, this is the audio-only version of a live video recording. You can find the link to the original video in the show notes.
In this episode, I talk with Mitchell van Wijngaarden, Davzie, N0xie, and Rafael Dohms about ActiveRecord, DataMapper, Doctrine, and Value Objects. Just as a heads up, this audio was pulled from a live video recording. You can find the link to the original video in the show notes.
In this episode, Adam Wathan and Shawn McCool discuss the discipline of test-driven development. Just a heads up, we pulled this audio from a live video discussion. You can find the link to the original video in the show notes.
