Talk: Refactoring the Domain Guided by Tests

Legacy code is code that makes money, as they saying goes. But we have an opportunity to refactor when tickets and feature requests come in. How are we going to make sure we don't break things?

Using a test first approach we will turn this dumb data container into a rich and meaningful domain model. This gives us the confidence to tackle new challenges, without fear of regression. We will create a safe path forward guided by test driven development and new feature requests only. If you know a bit about tests but don't know how to get started in your own code base, then this is the talk for you.

Speaker: Pim Elshoff

I've been a developer-for-hire for over a decade and a professional developer any time soon now. With over half that time spent working with scrum at Procurios, the agile mindset has really clicked for me. Technology will always be a passion of mine, but with more experience my focus has shifted to people. I'm enthusiastic, I've got a loud mouth and I'm professionally stubborn.
