What I Love About Machine Control Programming

A Toastmasters Speech given on Sunrise Marion Toastmaster virtual club meeting on March 23rd, 2020

This was my first time trying to use my TV as a display and I was using a tripod mounted camera. I have much to learn about lighting and would use a free standing TV mount next time.

Announcement Welcoming Tyler Woodley

Tyler Woodley is joining Welty Automation as an application engineer.

Tyler last worked at Skyworks in Cedar Rapids involved in making amplifiers for next generation cellular devices.

Tyler took it upon himself to learn software development in order to build applications for in-house use with RF engineering lab testing equipment data collection and analysis.

I'm excited to begin working with Tyler on Monday and look forward building next generation machine control software with him in the HVAC OEM industry.

Branching out to Extend Your Technical Perspective

What's in your domain?
I appreciate how European developer conferences like DevTernity help me to gain a wider range of technical perspectives than I have available closer to home. (I live in Eastern Iowa, USA)

This conference had over 700 attendees from over 40 countries with my favorite speaker being J. B. Rainsberger with his "The Well-Balanced Programmer" presentation.

I was also glad I attended his "Surviving Legacy Code" workshop yesterday which he ended with an introduction to his "Universal Architecture" version of clean architecture and the value of having it.

This was my second European developer conference and I'm still impressed. The first was Domain-Driven Design Europe which was packed with people who take code quality seriously.

In case you're wondering, all the presentations at each of the conferences were done in English.

If you have a passion for software and the opportunity, I'd encourage you to try one of these. Getting outside your normal circle helps you to see other ways of addressing the challenges we all face in writing and maintaining software that can meet the needs of those who depend on us daily.

One of these is a great opportunity to combine it with a European vacation too. My wife sat this one out but we had a nice visit to Amsterdam together with an brief visit to London on our DDD EU trip.
