http://www.agilejournal.com/agileconnect – Over the past decade or so we’ve seen important new ideas added to the mix of software design practices to help us produce better software. Design Patterns help us capture the design solutions and reveal a rationale for using them. Refactoring allows us to improve system design after the code is written. Agile methods—and in particular, Extreme Programming—provide highly iterative and evolutionary development methods that are particularly well suited to fast changing requirements and rapidly evolving hardware and technology environments. Martin Fowler—a leading voice in understanding, honing, practicing, and promoting these approaches—offers up a suite of short talks on his recent thinking about how these design practices have changed software development. Join Martin to explore what’s new on the horizon to support the design and development of new, more complex, interconnected systems than the world has ever known.
