.NET Developer Days 2017 - Grand finale

Home



It's time to make the summary of .NET Developer Days 2017. Let's start with the organisation aspects. Here I'll shortly say it was simply good and I cannot complain. The good example showing that organisers really try to make everything ok is a fact that a friend of mine was able to register for the conference just one day before the event (what theoretically was not possible). Now let's move to the presentations. Here I have much more to write.

How did my presentation go?

Home



Two weeks ago I gave the presentation about artificial intelligences that write programs. Now, I got results of the survey conducted after the presentation and I decided to share some data with you. Below you can see the summary. The participants could judge me in 4 categories and 14 of them decided to do that. (Thank you!). I think that there were around 30+ people in total in the room.

NDepend - my point of view

Home



Sometime ago I was contacted by Patrick Smacchia, who is CEO and a lead developer in NDepend. In one sentence, NDepend is a tool that analyses your code and tells what is wrong and can be improved to avoid technical debt. Patrick offered my a free pro license for NDepend. A few years ago I was using it so it was an interesting proposition. We agreed that if I find NDepend useful, I will write a post about it and share my experience. As for me it's a win-win situation.

CareerCon Warsaw 2017 - AI that can program

Home

Terminator


On next Saturday (30-09), I'll give a presentation under the title "Can artificial intelligence program?" at CareerCon conference. I'll tell about existing solution, their abilities and limitations. At the end I'll try to answer the question if developers needs to worry and predict what we can expect in the future. If you have time I'll be glad to see you! The presentation will be in Polish. Here are the links:

SpecFlow + .NET Core = problems

Home



Since I started using SpecFlow acceptance tests, I think that they are simply great. If I had to select whether to write only unit tests or only acceptance tests, I would select the latter. Nonetheless, there is one important problem with SpecFlow.
