This year there will be several free webinars introducing a number of speakers who will introduce what they will be talking about during the main conference. They will be interactive allowing questions and answers to be asked during and after each speaker.
30th July 2012 – 1-2pm
Kevlin Henney will introduce his speech “Patterns for People” – Apparently, everyone knows about patterns. Except for the ones that don’t. Which is basically all the people who’ve never come across patterns… plus most of the people who have.
Allan Kelly will also be talking about Patterns: “Business Patterns for Software Developers” – Patterns, patterns everywhere. Patterns exist not just in the software code but around the code. In the same way patterns can explain software design they can explain how businesses are structured and operate.
