I would be presenting on the subject [TS1114] at NIWeek 2018 Software Engineering Processes, Architectures and Design (SEPAD, AKA cee-pad) Track at 5:00 PM on Wednesday, May 23 in Room 16A. This is a follow-up to “SOLID Error Handling” presentation I gave at NIWeek 2017.
For those, not going to NIWeek this year – come to the July 10 BALUG meeting to see the repeat talk.
Presentation discusses how application of SOLID Design Principles affects design and architecture of actor-based software. It covers the following topics:
and concludes with a summary:

It seems I need to improve my skills at timing presentations - the 49 ‘talkable’ slides took 1 hour and 45 minutes to present at a reasonably fast pace. However, it was not possible removing any of the material without leaving gaps in content. Perhaps, I should have split it in two 1 hour parts …
The (zipped) PowerPoint 2007 file has a fair amount of animations and is best viewed in Slide Show mode. It also has a substantial amount of Presenter Notes, which are essential for better understanding the presentation.
PDF file includes Presenter Notes (but not animations). To see notes either hover over an icon in the top left corner of a page (containing Notes) or right-click the icon and select “Open All Pop-ups” option. Diagrams & images on slides with animations are stacked and may obscure images farther out along Z axis.
