We are extremely excited to announce we will be welcoming Michael C. Feathers to Skills Matter for an evening talk on February 26th on 'Functional Pipeline Design in Ruby'

Do you know how to design software? Of course you do. We all know how to organize our applications with classes and methods. Often we use frameworks that help us with the easy choices. But many people don't realize that there are other approaches to design. We can often organize computation as a functional pipeline: a series of steps that move us from our initial data to our solution. When you adopt the pipeline approach, you end up with composable pieces that are often easy to reuse in other contexts.

This session will consist of Ruby demos of the design approach, however the approach can be used in other languages. Attend if you have reading knowledge of Ruby and a desire to learn how to design software from a different perspective.
