1. Does the architecture of your application tell you the intent of the application, or does it just tell you what frameworks you’ve used. A good architecture screams about the intent of the application and hides the frameworks. In this talk, Uncle Bob talks about the lost years of architecture, about how the web is just a detail, and about the best kind of architecture to use for your applications.

  2. NodeJS is The New Thing and it also happens to be a lot of fun and quite capable. In this talk Rob will take you from 0 to production using NodeJS, the NPM package management system, MongoDB, ExpressJS, and a handful of other NodeJS modules. You'll see various ways to structure your application using plain Javascript here, some CoffeeScript there and get an overall sense of what NodeJS can do, and why you should care.

  3. Let's do a deep dive into the first of the SOLID principles. What is a responsibility? Why should it be single? How do we make it single? We'll examine all these issues in extreme detail. We'll look at some old code to see whether it conforms or not. We'll also look at various design patterns and strategies that help us conform to this principle.

  5. Tests are a good thing, right? But how much should we test? What's not enough? What's too much? What should we test, and when?

    In this talk, we'll look at the many levels of testing, from the outermost UI tests to unit tests, what works well, what doesn't work well. We'll look at functional testing, subcutaneous testing, integration and unit testing and where and why we would want to do each. We'll arrive at a testing strategy for the sane without retreating into dogma by looking at real-world examples of how testing strategies differ per environment and team.

    At the end, you feel the fulfillment of a customized, holistic testing strategy that works for you and your team.
