I attended the Tech in the Middle: Day of Mobile event this last Saturday in Chicago.
Very interesting speakers with valuable insights into the future of the mobile marketplace. Wonderful presentations by Bob Martin, Jay Freeman and David Whatley.
The “Dynamic Languages are the Future” speech made a great case for Test Driven Development and the productivity boosting potential of languages like F# and Groovy. It would be cool if more people adopted these practices and made it much easier for other developers to maintain and modify their code. It would also be great if it spurred some more interesting ideas like we have seen with ViewModel patterns and the many new dynamic languages.
