Hack-the-Gap 2019

Preparation for Weekend

In answer to the question: “What should I know, expect, and have prepared for the weekend?”

  • The biggest thing to remember is to bring an open mind — you’ll learn new skills, tricks and maybe even a new programming language.
  • A laptop, charger, and you might bring an extension cord / power strip. Make sure it is a machine you can install and run software on (some work laptops are locked down).
  • Hav your favorite text editor installed. Make sure you have a modern code editor installed, lots of ppl use VSCode, Atom, Sublime. Be familiar with it.
  • Have Git installed, and be familiar with it. Additional tools that make using Git easier include Github Desktop and SourceTree. Additionally, many modern code editors such as VSCode integrate with Git. You are not required to use the command line, although many people do. If you’re not familiar with using Git in a team, let your team members and a mentor know and we will help.

After listening to the podcast, I realize I made an error:

Alice Walker is the author of "The Color Purple".

Toni Morrison is the author of "Beloved".

My apologies to both authors and the audience.

Answer to a question someone asked about how to write good tests:
View 1-howtowritegoodtests.org

OP: I asked this in another group and I got a million answers but I’ll ask here: anyone have a good way to learn how to write good tests? I’ve listened to a test driven development course on lynda.com. I don’t really have a specific question per se, just looking for a pointer to good testing practices beyond the basics.

tamouse:

everyone says testing is Super Important, but no one seems to definitively answer that question. the obvious answer is “write a lot of bad tests” but that is oh so dismal.

the stuff i learned from, ages and ages ago, is probably no longer in print, but look for these authors:

  • boris beizer

Learning Skills is like learning to sex eggs

The novice comes into the barn where an old woman is sitting in front of a bin of eggs, reaching into it, pulling out an egg, and she looks at it, feels it, holds it up to the light, and smells it, and then sets the egg into another tray to the right.

She repeats these steps with another egg, and eventually puts it to the right as well.

Another egg, same process, only this time she puts it to the left.

This goes on and the novice observes, without asking questions, and the old woman offers no explanation.

Finally, they break for the noon meal. Still without speaking of the process, they return, only this time the nove sits in front of the large bin of eggs. He picks up an egg, looks at it, shakes it, and the old woman takes the egg from him, and proceeds with the same process, looking at it, feels it, holds it up to the light, smells it, and then sets it to the left.

This is pretty old now, and I'll likely do it a lot different these days.
