One of the things that really impressed me at the conference was Industrial Logic’s Agile eLearning product/project. I went to two good talks by Joshua Kerievsky (refactoring) and Brian Foote (patterns) both of which demo’ed their eLearning stuff. It’s arranged in albums and makes lots of use of videos.
They’ve put a lot of thought into this. I was very impressed by their choice of domains when talking about design patterns, for example the baby/stalk analogy when talking about factory patterns.
You can now buy these online. They’re not cheap, but neither is good development talent! Developers without opportunities to learn and grow are unhappy developers.
Note: Joshua gave me a T-shirt, nothing more. I have no affiliation with I.L, other than occasionally bumping into them at conferences and we make up defamatory songs about agile methodologies. I happen to think what they’re doing here is cool.
