Quick report on Malmö coders’ book club: This was the initial sitting, and we were 7 people around the table. One academic, two leads, and four software engineers. We spoke English, since we were an international crowd.
At least three physical notebooks full of written notes were out, and the conversation was started based on questions people had during their reading. The conversations were personal, kind, and focused. It brings more perspective, to have people of different backgrounds, of different roles.
This was one of the peer groups I’d been looking for. 5 out of 5 thumbs.
PS: We had been reading Michael Feathers’ Working Effectively With Legacy Code.
