Anyone at Hull who fancies an hour’s break from coursework and revision today can pop along to a lunchtime event run by Robert Hogg and Steve Spencer of Black Marble. Rob and Steve are Microsoft MVPs (but none the worse for that) who have a lot (and I mean a lot) of experience of writing software for customers. If you want to hear some “Tales from Real Life” then you should go along to LTA in the Robert Blackburn Building at 1:15 pm today.
This event would be particularly useful for any First or Second Year students who want to learn more about the software development process.
I’ll be there…. taking notes….
Steve and Rob gave a great presentation that brought home the realities of the software development business. I think for me the thing that they brought out is that, perhaps surprisingly, software development is all about people. A successful developer must be able to interact with the customer, their manager, other developers, the test team and lots of other people to get a happy ending.
