Dyalog '13 Videos - week 8

Postby Fiona|Dyalog on Fri Dec 27, 2013 1:13 pm

This week's conference videos deal with improving your product and your life! Go to http://www.dyalog.com/user-meetings/dyalog13.htm to read about Dyalog ’13 and follow the links to the videos.

• A must-see for all APLers, "Social Skills for Programmers" covers the Dos and Do Nots of social interactions between APLers and Normal People. JohnS takes us through this as gently as he can, but sometimes the truth is painful… (http://video.dyalog.com/Dyalog13/?v=3qGsCrkWT-4)

• In "Documenting Dyalog APL", Fiona goes into her plans for Dyalog APL's documentation set and asks the questions that could direct its future. (http://video.dyalog.com/Dyalog13/?v=PsNvWrsSfr8)

• Gianfranco Alongi introduces us to the idea of "Test Driven Development (TDD) in APL". By explaining the rationale behind the creation of tests as part of the design phase, he justifies the three fundamental laws of TDD and the TDD cycle. He also covers the benefits of refactoring and the values, principles and practises of TDD; taking these into account can turn a developer into a software craftsman.

There will be further updates next Friday highlighting the new videos for the week. If you have any requests for specific videos that you’d like to see sooner rather than later then please let us know at conference@dyalog.com and we’ll see what we can do.
