This week Jon leads a discussion of real world development. We talk about how our development practices in our jobs and personal projects match up with the way we’re “supposed to be” developing. Topics:

  • What are the non-negotiable practices that we always use on any code we write?
  • Jon isn’t always Test Driven. Does that make him a bad person?
  • Where do code reuse and maintainability stack up when it comes to other real world priorities, like hard deadlines and short technology lifespans?
  • Is there a place for “forms over data” development? How about System.DraggyDroppy?
