Tonight's meeting of the Software
Craftsmanship Group was led by
Uncle Bob Martin.
This time around we tried a Randori-style coding dojo. The task was to build a clock and, although we fell short of the original goal
of having a GUI, there was plenty to be learned in this process.
I felt it was an interesting way to learn about your own performance under a moderate
amount of pressure. More importantly, at least for me, was getting exposure to
BDD and pairing with other developers that are a few step ahead of me on that particular
Once again, because I'm not a Ruby developer by day, I felt a little bit uneasy taking my turn and
going up there to code a little bit. But I would not pass the experience, otherwise why even bother
showing up for the event at all.
The whole thing was captured on tape. Hopefully the video will be made available and I'll
come back and link to it here.
I'll be interested in hearing more about it at the group meeting tomorrow, but....

I hearby proclaim my programming method to be called 'Jujutsu', because that makes it seem so much more special. I should market it.
And if you don't like the randori dojo, try the tandori chicken.
All you need is some basic introduction to Japanese:

- suttaki traceru
- curry brace

Yes, we did record the meeting. I need to edit it and get it posted. I'll let you know when it is ready.
Here are the videos, compliment of Doug Bradbury.
