Back from the first Barcelona Python Meetup Group event. The event was good, with two talks:
- Maik Röder, based on the Eight tips to start with Python. Maik added an additional tip (use PyFlakes, a faster PyChecker) and asked the attendants for our own tips: IPython (a great shell that I should be using again) proved to have many fans! I mentioned my love for ctypes.
- Ramon Navarro Bosch, on Design Patterns in Python. Ramon recommended us Alex Martelli's Google TechTalk video on the topic.
- write the functional test, to get aligned with the user's needs/customer value,
- write unit test, that can be driven faster and focus in the approapiate level of abstraction
- write the code
Beyond functional testing, the programmer's flow, the business-technical gap, Barcelona, Sevilla, tele-working... an intriguing an promising idea: the I-told-you-that-this-was-a-wrong-decision year-end bonus.
