6:10-7:00: Using eclipse plug-ins for faster development in J2EE by Gautam Dev

Developing an enterprise-level Java application is a challenging task. One typically has to create lot of classes and configurations. Generating and navigating through the classes can be a very arduous task. You have some free tools to help you out with all the staff. The benefits of eclipse and some of the plug-ins including fast code eclipse plug-in will be presented with live coding. This talk will show how to use genetic J2EE components so development time is much faster.

7:15-8:45: Writing Testable Code by Jim McMaster

Writing tests is easy, right?  Anyone can use JUnit.  The hard part is writing your code so it is easy (or even possible) to test.  Tonight, we'll talk about some techniques for making your code easier to test, and some pitfalls to avoid.

About Jim McMaster:

Jim McMaster has been writing code since it was punched on cards.  He also is a long-time fan of developer testing.  He is a Software Engineer at Google, Inc. in Boulder, working mainly on Google Drive.  He also acts as world-wide publisher for Testing on the Toilet.

    Anybody remember the name/author of the pattern book that Jim mentioned as a follow-on to Martin Fowler's REFACTORING book?

    Great talks, both. The plugins talk would benefit from choosing examples for illustration of value/impact as well as the mechanics. The tiny examples left me wondering if the juice was worth the squeeze.

    The presentation on the Eclipse Plugins was kind of scattered. The presenter was hard to hear and understand sometimes.

    Like Jim McMaster's comment: When it's really hard to do something your code is telling you something.

      I think my code must always be telling me something! Lol
