Magpie Talkshow Episode 10 - Martin Fowler
Small Room Edition
Posted on Jan 12 2016
Many of you have probably heard of my colleague Martin Fowler before. I'm lucky enough to get to work with him on occasion as part of my role on ThoughtWorks' Technology Advisory Board (or TAB), which is an internal body inside ThoughtWorks itself. One of the main responsibilities of the TAB is putting out the twice yearly Technology Radar, and I was in our New York office recently to work on the new version when Martin and I found time to catch up for a chat.
Recorded in a rather cozy room, we talked about many things, including how Martin got where he is today, how the tech radar is created, and even the future of computing books.
During the interview we reference quite a few things, so there are a bunch of links for further reading if you're so inclined:
- Toby Clemson's Infodeck on Testing Microservices
- Martin's early writing (late 90's)
- Recent refactoring articles
- General microserservices resources
- Infodeck on the future of data
- What makes a good Anti-pattern
- On Feature branches
- And on Taking responsibility for what we build
Finally you can follow Martin on twitter as @martinfowler.
I hope you enjoy the episode!
