"Refactoring your code – A Key Step in Agility" with Venkat Subramaniam

Refactoring is one of the core practices in Agile Software Development. Refactoring is based on some core principles that apply to more than writing good code. But, what is refactoring? Why should you do it? How do you go about doing that? What tools are available to successfully refactor your App? In this presentation we will address each of these questions. We will take an examples based approach to look at code that can benefit from refactoring. We will discuss how to identify a case for refactoring. Then we will use tools to help us refactor.

Dr. Venkat Subramaniam is an award-winning author, founder of Agile Developer, Inc., and an adjunct faculty at the University of Houston.
He has trained and mentored thousands of software developers in the US, Canada, Europe, and Asia, and is a regularly-invited speaker at several international conferences. Venkat helps his clients effectively apply and succeed with agile practices on their software projects.

Venkat is a (co)author of multiple books, including the 2007 Jolt Productivity award winning book Practices of an Agile Developer. His latest book is Functional Programming in Java: Harnessing the Power of Java 8 Lambda Expressions. You can reach him by email at [masked] or on twitter at @venkat_s.

    I liked some examples very much:
    "I believe nobody here writes long methods. This people are not here. They are still sitting at work writing those long methods :)" (or something similar)

      "... they are still at work, making those methods even longer!" Very funny

    Outstanding presentation led by a very charismatic man! The most important thing - it was pragmatic and based on life-examples. I enjoyed a lot!
