  • Hexagonal Architecture from its Inventor -Alistair Cockburn, Humans & Technology, inc. | Craft, 2023 (Alistair Cockburn) [Architecture, Architecture patterns, Evolutionary Architecture, hexagonal] [Duration: 00:42] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) Great explanation of hexagonal architecture made by its original author. Essential if you use or are considering using this type of architecture. Good information also to know when not to use them.
  • How To Use TDD For UI Design (Dave Farley) [Software Design, tdd] [Duration: 00:13] In this episode, Dave explores testing at the edges of the system with examples based on testing UI code as part of a TDD approach. The same tactic can be used to test other components that are difficult to test.
  • JUXT Cast S5E4 - Special with Kent Beck (Kent Beck, Jeremy Taylor, Malcom Sparks, James Henderson) [Software Design, XP] [Duration: 01:11] Interesting conversation about the concept of eventual business consistency () / bitemporality and about XP.

  • Scaling Organizations and Design with James Shore (James Shore, Chris Lucian, Austin Chadwick) [Agile, Fast Agile, MobProgramming, Software Design, Technical Practices, testing] [Duration: 00:48] (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐) Exciting conversation with James Shores. It covers many topics, including fast-agile, mobbing, testing without mocks, technical practices, etc. Highly recommended.
  • Thinking Asynchronously: App Integration Patterns for Microservices (Rebekah Kulidzan) [Architecture, Architecture patterns] [Duration: 00:44] Good list of communication and integration patterns between services. Great talk to remember the basics and clarify some concepts.
