Nat Pryce is an early adopter of eXtreme Programming and a contributor to several open source libraries and tools supporting Test-Driven Development, like jMock. In this episode we discuss several topics from the book 'Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests' that he wrote together with Steve Freeman. We talk about the 'Londen-style' of Test-Driven Development, using mock objects to drive your design, listening to your tests and dependency injection.
Nat completed his PhD thesis in 2000: 'Component Interaction in Distributed Systems'. A lot of his thoughts on object-orientation and messaging between objects and peers that is described in the book, can be traced back to his early research.
In order to improve the testability of your software, Steve and Nat propose to apply the Ports and adapter architecture from Alistair Cockburn. You can read more on this subject on the wiki of Alistair.
In this episode an interview with James Coplien, where we cover a range of topics from his book Lean Architecture for Agile Software Development. We talk about the role of design and architecture in agile software development and discuss DCI architecture.
In this episode we speak with Joost Visser and Per John of the Software Improvement Group (SIG). We talk about the process and measurements they use to analyze and monitor the quality of the software projects for their clients. Joost and Per explain the different types of services the SIG provides, and we discuss different quality attributes and metrics for software.

In this episode an interview with Zef Hemel about mobl - a domain specific language for creating mobile applications. Mobl came about as part of Zef's PhD about the design and implementation of domain-specific languages. We talk about mobile application development and discuss the design and use of mobl. Zef also briefly explains the toolstack that is used to create mobl.
Bijeenkomsten van Devnology zijn erop gericht enthousiaste ontwikkelaars bijeen te brengen om kennis en ervaring uit te wisselen, te discussiëren en te netwerken - geek to geek.
Vanuit Devnology willen wij vooral kijken naar concepten binnen software ontwikkeling. Als zich nieuwe ontwikkelingen voordoen zullen we vooral kijken naar het concept erachter en deze in een breed kader van eerdere technieken en/of bestaande platformen plaatsen. Lees meer...
