Whose talks did I enjoy? Damian is, as always great. Steve Hayman from Apple was as entertaining as Damian, and I don't say that lightly. Daniel Allen's style guide talk had a message that everyone should be exposed to. The two talks on test-driven development (by Ted Karitonov and Andy Lester) yet again made me think I should be doing it.
I think the world needs a set of kata, small tasks that you can write tests for first. Then you can see how an expert wrote tests, and compare. Everyone works on different projects, so it's hard when people like Schwern and Andy say "just start testing your code!" to know what aspects of your code to start with. Baby steps, training wheels
Anyway, Abigail's about to start talking about, I don't know, regular expressions on crack, which seems to have been his theme throughout the whole of his speaking career. I think I missed the talk where he proposed solving all NP-hard problems with regular expressions, but I don't want to mis this one. Until later
