Abstract:

Many programmers are dedicated, or even obsessed, with writing “good” code. Often we follow certain patterns and practices because we believe they are the best solution for the problem, or because the “experts” tell us to. In this session, we will discuss what good code really is and what benefits it brings.
The talk covers concepts related to code readability, and walks through a number of refactorings on an example web application.

Presenters: 

Jane Prusakova and Josh Rizzo are software consultants, working at Improving Enterprises, a boutique software consulting firm.   We work on large-scale projects spanning many teams and generations of developers, work with legacy and greenfield code, and appreciate a good code base.

The talk will take place at Microsoft Austin office on May 11, 2015 5:30 pm – 8:00 pm
