September 2016 Meetup Summary

BDD for an Every Day Developer

Bron Thulke

Bron spoke enthusiastically about using Behaviour-Driven Design when undertaking development for her customers. She spoke about putting Behaviour-Driven Design into practice with real life situations and how it’s never as straight forward as “testing a calculator” like in all the examples.

Bron explained what BDD is, how it can benefit web projects large and small, what the Gherkin language is, and demonstrated how it can be applied in .NET using Specflow (Cucumber for .NET).

Thank-you Bron for an informative presentation.

Quantum Computing Fundamentals via OO

Carl Belle

Carl pointed out that many great resources exist for those who want to learn about quantum computing. Carl pointed out these resources are all well and good, and probably provide a great deal of insight to those equipped to digest them (physicists, mathematicians), but for the rest of us, they appear dense and impenetrable.

Unfortunately for me, even though the presentation was targeted to a novice, I was way below even novice level and I reached my capabilities at the introduction. It was a very detailed and comprehensive presentation, well done Carl.
