Presenter: Scott Gerstl

Presentation: Principles of Abstracted Programming - A look at how to take the redundancies out your code by encapsulating your processes and code logic by passing them what they need to function. This goes beyond passing strings and ints, and treads into the realm of inspecting structures and types of objects at runtime using reflection and generics. Learning to recognize code you have written twice, abstracting it, and encapsulating it, will help protect your code to future changes and bugs.
