Post-meetup: Juli 2011

The meetup last week was our biggest meetup so far, with 12 twelve participants.

Here are a few pictures from the event. We had three smaller talks:

Growing object oriented Software guided by Tests (the GOOS book)

Behavior Driven Development (Jan will also present this at froscon in August)

Mock objects
.. plus a lot of good discussion. Afterwards we headed over to the Fiddler's for a "retrospective" ;)

A big thanks to Tarent who hosted the event, and also dished up some lovely cookies and drinks for us!

Note that for the August meetup, we are considering doing a "Sommerfest" hosted by Viaboxx Systems. We'll only go through with the Sommerfest if enough people sign up, so do sign up at the Xing event here!

Bonn Agile Meetup - Juli 2011: Testing, etc

The Bonn Agile Meetup (formerly known as Bonn XP-Meetup) is getting together to discuss (and code) some:

  • Unit Tests
  • Test-driven development
  • Mocking
  • GOOS

If you want to contribute to this topic with a lightning talk, a kata, a coding dojo, etc, join in on the mailing list. (Note that the event is mainly German, even though this post is in English).

There will be a projector/beamer available, so bring your laptop and show off some cool testing tricks you want to share!

It takes place in one week: Monday 18th of July, at 19:00.

This time we're (finally) trying out a meetup in an office location. Tarent has been kind enough to let us use their offices in Bonn/Duisdorf. This is the address (source):

Rochusstraße 2-4
53123 Bonn

How to get there
The fastest way to get there is probably by taking a bus from Bonn Hauptbahnhof to the stop called Euskirchener Str. (lines 606, 607, 608, 609). It's a pretty short and easy ride.

Sign up
You can sign up for this event on Xing. And do join in on the discussion on the mailing list!

All links around should also be updated.

Note that the Xing group is still called "Bonn XP Meetup" until some Xing admins find the time to rename it.
