Codetown ::: a software developer's community

Hello GatorJUG!

Here's an update on our January meeting. Kevin's going to talk with us about analysis. Our sponsor is Cambridge Web Design

Kevin Neelands has been programming for 30 or 35 years or so in a wide variety of circumstances, from educational programs for K-12 to sophisticated mathematical analysis using everything from AppleSoft BASIC to Java, C# and ARM assembly language.  Some of his work can be found in  iTunes and on Amazon.  It's all free, so download some and give a raving review.
There is still a problem with a lack of analysis in computer software, with coders racing to 'get something shippable' quickly instead of giving a problem a through examination and exploring different solutions before deciding on a path to take. Kevin will attempt to examine this problem and offer a few solutions by drawing comparisons between coding analysis and some aspects of learning theory, but he may just ramble aimlessly for 45 minutes and then invite some audience participation in the form of any horror stories about design gone bad-wrong people would like to share.  Should prove to be interesting either way.
The meeting will be Wed, Jan 13 at Santa Fe College rm S-317, from 6-8:30. We'll have pizza from 6-7 and the discussion will begin at 7.
Hope to see you there!
