Writing; C Vu Magazine Columns (for January/March/May)

Spectacularly late, but I ought to keep the records up to date:

  • My January 2016 C Vu magazine column was Bug Hunting (Part 2), concluding my series on finding and fixing software faults.
  • My March 2016 column was Software Development Is..., an investigation of the finer details (the art, craft, science, and, well... gardening) of the programmer's world.
  • My May 2016 column was Organised Chaos, a look at how the programmer can stay focused and organised.

Speaking: Nordevcon

I'll be speaking on Friday at Nordevcon in Norwich.

I'll be giving
 my Becoming a Better Programmer talk, and it should be great fun. Nordevcon has a strong line up this year, so it looks to be a great conference.

Writing: Bug hunting (part 1)

The latest C Vu magazine has hit respectable doormats the world over. It contains my latest column, entitled "Bug Hunting". You'll never guess what it's about.

Speaking: Juce Summit

I'm giving a "guest talk" at the Juce Summit on the 19th November. Juce is a great C++ framework that's particularly well suited to audio application development.

I'll be giving a specially crafted version of one of my favourite talks - this time called "Becoming a Better (audio) Programmer". I hope it'll be a lot of fun!


There's a lot going on at this conference - and a heroically packed schedule. Check it out here: http://www.juce.com/summit.

Writing: More magazine columns


I've been remiss at posting news of my recent magazine columns.

C Vu issue 27.2 carried a column entitled Wallowing in Filth, about how to deal with messy code. C Vu 27.3's column was called Coding Dinosaurs, and discussed how to avoid become an extinct coder.
