Last week, we had the author of TDD for a Shopping Website LiveProject. Friday at 11am Ranch time, Steven Solomon will be hosting a live TDD session just for us. See for the agenda and registration link
Michelle, Jamie, Pini, Congratulations! I skimmed the free chapters today. I think the combination of mc-kinsey style business story sliding into patterns is genius. (I was at the first software circus, so the foreword was a nice reminder :-) ).
I'm glad to see patterns used, and also glad they are not only in the book, a website makes them a lot easier to refer to and reuse. E.g. I have books of patterns that other people don't have and vice versa, resulting in me not using those patterns.
Greetings, Willem, and thanks so much for your kind words 😊. Taking a story approach to a software development patterns book was definitely a leap, and it is really good to hear from people that found it useful and enjoyed it.
As for the website, it's brand new and a work in progress, as you probably noticed, and the next step will be to cross-link the related patterns. Our poor front end dev is working overtime as it is, but it's high up in the task backlog. I'm so happy you found it of use already, though, and hope you will keep visiting. Our next phase is to make it a community resource for discussing, developing and putting up new patterns, and everyone is invited to participate!
