Sam and I are going to pick up some beer and pizza for this one – so come hungry and thirsty. I will also be giving away an Apple Remote or two, or three. As always, first Wednesday of the month (Dec 3), 7pm, Brightcove 12th floor. Map to Brightcove. Then drinks after at Characters – which is on the first floor of the Brightcove building.
UPDATE: Flash on Tap has been postponed to May 2009. It will now be even more awesome!
I’ll be speaking at Flash on Tap this October 7-9 in Boston. This should be a great conference: Flash + Beer = Nothing to Fear? Or something. Anyway, the speaker line up is top notch. I’m pretty psyched to be included in such an impressive group. My topic is Five Minute Design Patterns. Description below…
Screw eight minute abbs. We’ll be learning a new design pattern every five minutes in this high-impact non-aerobic session. That’s ten whole patterns: Adapter, Template, Singleton, Factory, Strategy, Facade, Iterator, Command, Bridge, and Composite. Why so many in so little time? Because patterns are used for many things, but, mostly they are used to impress other developers. So volume counts. “Composite your tree structure!”; “Facade those classes!”; “UML your bridge!”; and “Iterate this!” are just some things you might say after you’ve paid a little bit of attention during this session. Feel the burn!
We’ll see if the preso works (I think it will be fun), but, hey, if it doesn’t, what do you care? You get to drink beer.
I’ll be giving a talk on the Bridge Pattern at the BFPUGDesign Patterns Group(I really need to update that page) this Wednesday (May 7, 2008). As always, it’ll take place at Brightcove and will start at 7pm. And as always, we will get together for beers afterwards at Characters (which is located beneath Brightcove). Please stop by. These are really fun nights. Map here.
I put together a page listing all the design patterns meetings and presentations we’ve had so far. Here it is. As you will see, many of the presenters are not sending me their presentations. Keith Peters even claims to have lost his. Unfortunately, I missed the last meeting so I couldn’t bug everyone. Anyway, hopefully soon, this list will be more complete.
Also, credit for the group goes to Sam Robbins for starting the group. Although, even he hasn’t emailed me his presentations.
