Development Infrastructure Patterns
Design Patterns became part of the software development industry mainstream in the mid-1990s with the release of the Go4 Design Patterns book. Since then, architecture, design, and more recently, organizational patterns have become a part of our nomenclature. But, what about the software that helps us develop and deliver the software to our users: the software development infrastructure?
Paul will introduce you to patterns such as the Robot, Detector, Kitchen Sink, and Scorched Earth patterns that will help you build a robust software development infrastructure. The implementation of these patterns will help reduce common risks on your projects and allow you to focus on the interesting work of solving the unique problems of your users.
