Engineering Room Conversation with Dave Farley
My old colleague Dave Farley has been running an increasingly popular YouTube channel on software development. It's good material, very much in line with my own views, after all his experience is a big influence on my thinking. We talk about a range of topics about the current role of software engineering, focusing particularly on the three large-scale writing projects I'm supporting at the moment: Data Mesh, Patterns of Distributed Systems, and Patterns of Legacy Displacement.
Interview with Sam Newman about Microservices
goto conferences asked me to do an interview with Sam Newman on his book: "Monoliths to Microservices". This turned into a general conversation about microservices and when to use them. Sam considers the three main reasons for them to be independent deployability, isolation of data, and reflecting the organizational structure. I'm more skeptical of the first, but consider data and people to be complicated parts of software development.
Agile Book Club: Refactoring
James Shore's Art of Agile Development is my favorite single-volume book on agile software development. A reason for that is its serious emphasis on the technical practices that are essential to making it work effectively. James and I discuss the role of refactoring for software development, the nature of design changes we see, and how to break down big changes into small pieces.
Software Architecture Hour with Neal Ford: The Future of Software
Neal and I discuss the interplay between the patterns and practices that drive good software architecture.
Recollections of Writing the Agile Manifesto
The Agile Uprising podcast has been doing a series of interviews with the authors of the Agile Manifesto. This is my turn in the interview seat. I don't remember much about the Snowbird workshop itself, but I was able to describe a bit about the context leading up to the manifesto.
Podcast on Agility and Architecture
Ryan Lockard (Agile Uprising) invited me to join Rebecca Wirfs-Brock for a podcast conversation on architecture on agile projects. Rebecca developed Responsibility-Driven Design, which was a big influence for me when I started my career. We talked about how we define architecture, the impact of tests on architecture, the role of domain models, what kind of documentation to prepare, and how much architecture needs to be done up-front.
Agile Brazil Interview
Interview with Paulo Caroli and me at Agile Brazil
DSL interview with Neal Ford and Jeffery Snover (JAOO 2008)
A Microsoft Channel 9 interview of me, my colleague Neal Ford, and Jeffery Snover (creator of PowerShell). The general topic is that of DSLs - Neal and I had just finished a tutorial on the topic at JAOO 2008 and had some good conversations with Jeffery.
Perspectives on DSLs with Chris Sells
When I attended DSL DevCon, Microsoft's Channel 9 dragged me off to be interviewed by Chris Sells.
Interview with Artima.com
I was interviewed by Bill Venners for his artima.com web site. In the interview I touch upon refactoring, evolutionary design, flexibility, and test driven development. Bill even manages to make me sound coherent.
InfoQ Interview with Jez and me on Continuous Delivery
An interview with Jez Humble and me at QCon San Francisco in 2010
Agile at 10
SD Times interview on 10 years since the agile manifesto
Interviewed by Jim Highsmith
When I went to Snowbird in 2001 for the meeting that led to the Manifesto, Jim interviewed me for a book he was working on. It provides a snapshot on my thinking on extreme programming and this thing that a few days later we called agile software development.
SE Radio Podcast on Domain-Specific Languages
I'm joined by Thoughtworks CTO Rebecca Parsons, who was a contributer to the DSL book, to talk with Markus Völter about DSLs. We talk about what DSLs are, the differences between internal and external DSLs, and when you should (and shouldn't use DSLs).
