DevTeach Toronto wrapup

As always DevTeach was a blast this time around. It was good to catch up with some of the people that I haven’t seen for a while. This was my first time at the conference where I had a full slate of presentations to do. All of the seemed to go fairly well and the conversation continued in the hallways after the sessions had wrapped up. The material for all three presentations can be found here (Take CCNet and nAnt to the Next Level, Techniques for Starting on Brownfield Projects, Introduction to Behaviour Based Testing).

One of the things that I learned at DevTeach was to watch the naming of my sessions going forward. This year DevTeach had a lot of sessions focusing on BDD (Behaviour Driven Development) which led to some confusion with my Intro to Behaviour Based Testing session. The mistake I made was to use the overloaded term ‘Behaviour’ instead of the term ‘Interaction’. While both are applicable for the session title, I probably should have cleared that up before the first slide in my session.

Other than that one mistake, the conference went fairly well for me. A few of us went out to the CBC to watch a taping of The Hour with George Stroumboulopoulos. We hung out in the lobby until all hours and Jeff Palermo held his infamous Party with Palermo. Good times all around. Hope to see some of you at DevTeach Montreal in December.
