GeekUp Manchester takes place on the second Tuesday of every month. It's a grass-roots knowledge sharing and networking social for folks involved or interested in all forms of technology and creative media.

We've got a new format - Each week we'll announce a topic up for discussion for everyone to get involved around the table, feel free to bring along something to show relating to the topic.

This months Discussion Topic: "Coding Practices"

  • Do you use version control, if so which one? When do you use it? Any scare stories of forgetting to?
  • Do you test your code? If not, why? What would it take to make you test your code better? What tools do you use?
  • Do you spec out your projects? How much? Do you do it religiously? Do you find any benefit?
  • Do you practice XP? Pair coding? Agile development? Lean development? TDD?
  • How do you run YOUR projects - what works and what doesn't?
