Episode 24 with Khaled Souf

Episode # 24| 2020-11-24

Split functionality into small units

New week, new episode. And the guest is Khaled Souf, and I challenge him with the heuristic “Split functionality into small units” from the Xebia Essentials repository (https://essentials.xebia.com/thirty-minute-methods/). Khaled will explain how he approaches software, and what are the tools, practices and techniques that he uses to deliver value. We also discuss inclusion and diversity as a critical aspect for organisations to strive!

Khaled recommends:

  • Test Driven Development: By Example by Kent Beck
  • Growing Object-Oriented Software, Guided by Tests by Steve Freeman and Nat Pryce
  • Domain-Driven Design: Tackling Complexity in the Heart of Software by Eric Evans
  • Patterns, Principles, and Practices of Domain-Driven Design by Scott Millett and Nick Tune
  • DDD Crew GitHub repo (https://github.com/ddd-crew)
  • The Software Craftsman: Professionalism, Pragmatism, Pride by Sandro Mancuso
  • The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey
