18:30 - 19:30: Twelve Ways to Make Code Suck Less
Venkat Subramaniam

We all have seen our share of bad code and some really good code as well. What are some of the common anti patterns that seem to be recurring over and over in code that sucks? By learning about these code smells and avoiding them, we can greatly help make our code better. Come to this talk to learn about some common code smell and how to improve the quality of code.

19:45 - 20:45: Exploring Java 9
Venkat Subramaniam

If Java 8 was all about how we code, Java 9 is all about how we will build. Modularization will have the biggest impact of any change that happened in Java since its inception. In this presentation we will learn about the need for modularization, how it impacts development, the rules to follow when creating modules, and the effect it has on legacy code. We will explore creating module, using modules, readability, exports, automatic modules, and unnamed modules.
