Whew! It’s finally done. I just gave my one and only session at Tech-Ed US 2007. I have to tell you I really sweated this one. After giving the “Pattern & Anti-Patterns for SOA” talk for the last 2 years I knew I had to do something different. The question was, what would it be? Initially I thought about covering three broad topics but then I realized that they were so broad I wouldn’t have time to do any of the three justice so I decided to focus on one thing. Test Driven Development and its influence on Architectural Patterns like Model-View-Presenter (MVP).
In order to build a foundation I had to do a simple example of TDD and then I showed a video of Peter Provost explaining TDD which was really terrific. Later in the talk I showed some demo code to drill further into these concepts along with some demo code that uses NMock (which I really like)
The talk had a strange title… I was out of touch when they had to submit it so I had a title chosen for me. Nevertheless I think it went well.
I also did a pre-conference session called PRCN01-Introduction to Software Architecture
