<p>Here’s my website. Some common things are on the navbar. I’ve also worked to preserve any locations that people would have linked to from elsewhere. If I’ve broken a link of yours that used to point to sencjw.com somewhere, let me know and I’ll put it back, <a href="http://www.w3.org/Provider/Style/URI">cool URIs don’t change</a>.</p>

<p>Rich had a few words for TDD in his talk, and I think these were widely misinterpreted. His point was simply that tests have a cost and a thoughtless devotion to them will risk underestimating that cost. I think a lot of people took that to mean “you shouldn’t test” or that “tests are worthless”, but I think he was just pointing out that they’re not free. He introduced the term “guardrail programming” for a style that just bounces between the guardrails rather than proceeds to a destination by steering.</p>
<p>This talk drew a standing ovation from the crowd, including, I hear, Gerald Sussman. I’ll be looking for it on video when it comes out.</p>
<p>Strangeloop 2011+N is definitely on my must-attend list. The people that I met (which could be another couple of blog posts) were worth the admission all by themselves. The talks were fascinating and gave me a ton to read up on. The conference felt like it was well-run and organized. St. Louis was a cool city to hang out in (I wish we had the same open-container law in Madison!). I can’t wait for next year.</p>

-<p>I’m going to be attending the <a href="http://madisonruby.org">Madison Ruby Conference</a> this Friday and Saturday. I must confess that I’m not a Ruby-ista (does this reveal my <em>pythonista</em> heritage?) by training but I’m really excited to go and see who attends, chat with smart tech-folk, and generally have a good nerd-time yakking about code. Plus, it couldn’t hurt to see a little ruby code and see what all the fuss is about. I’m not going to confine myself to: C, Java, Python, Lisp, Haskell, and shell. Conference Ahoy.</p>
