  • Jan. 28 Ayo Dahunsi - Cutting development time by over 50% with code generation

    Idylwylde Branch, Public Library

    Please note our location for this event is at Bonnie Doon public library. Please come join us for this event and RSVP so we can get a head count for attendance and food accommodation. 5:30-6:00pm Food 6:00-7:00pm Ayo Dahunsi - Cutting development time by over 50% with code generation Abstract: As developers, the code we write daily, for the most part is always repetitive. Over 60% of our code is always CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete). As a result of the complexity in anticipating what the logic of a codebase is based on, the traditional practice with code generators is to build in specific code generation logic into the engine, and for the most part, also generate a lot of redundant code that the user ends up deleting, a good example can be found with the Visual Studio templates. While these templates are powerful for a quick start, they do not allow for continuous development.. you generate once and that is it. What if you can have a smarter way of configuring and generating code? This is what CodeStencil will attempt to do. Speaker Bio: I have over 20 years experience as a developer and have worked in various industries from financial, government, medical. Most of my career, I worked in the United States for a company providing Cancer Administration software used in over thousands of sites worldwide and in the top cancer centres in the world including our own Princess Margaret Cancer Centre in Ontario. I designed the enterprise scheduling system used in the software. My passion has always been to find ways to do things faster and quicker and I hate repeating processes. If a process I repeated more than once, I always look for ways to automate that process. Next Event: We are looking for speakers for the rest of the season.
