  • Programming Tips, Tricks and Tools for Novices — Alec Clews
    • Summary:
      Learning to program can be a daunting activity. As well as learning a computer language there is a significant amount of other knowledge and information to absorb -- apparently much of it through osmosis. Additionally can also be very hard to organise your objectives and work to reach your end goal.

      This presentation will use real examples and demonstrations to cover some of these topics. Specific tools will be used as illustrations but the ideas will be applicable no matter what tool set is available.

    • Agenda:
      1. Issues with development: e.g. Bugs, tedium, never releasing working product
      2. Useful Processes and Ideas: User Stories, Test Driven Development, Minimal Viable Product
      3. Tools to support the programming process:
        1. Version Control
        2. Using a sophisticated editor. Editors vs. IDEs
        3. Automation of testing and other things
        4. Organising your code and Building software

    Abstract: A lot of software is easy to make. A small fraction of software requires subtle insight or clever analysis, without which a practical solution is expensive or impossible. Drawing from some of my experience in academia, the commercial software industry, and bioinformatics research, I will discuss a few cases that exemplify this, as well as some of the tools, software and intellectual, that I have used to good effect.
