17 April 2013 - Johnno Nolans Legacy Code: Rehab
March 9, 2013 at 11:02 AM
If you believe the blog and twittersphere we're all writing sleek well designed, SOLID, test covered, behaviour driven, pluggable, perfomant, immutable, asynchronous node.js in sharded erlang on our ubuntu phones. If you aren't then apparently you're some form of knuckle dragging neanderthal. But guess what? Codebases exist well after the high paid consultants abandon their half baked designs. The majority of codebases are ugly, broken and damn scary to work with and the majority of software development is carried out on those codebases!
In this session you'll be joining Johnno Nolan in dissecting and discussing legacy code and with any luck, making some of it better too.
Laptops preferred. Language agnostic. Opinions required from developers of all skill levels.
NOTE:- Given the nature of this event, The Wrekin Housing Trust have very kindly agreed to allow us to hold this event in their big meeting room at their offices in Telford. Furthermore, to get the most from this session, it will start at 18:30 and run until 21:30.
Don't forget: different venue, different time!
Contact Martin if you've any questions regarding this event
