We, developers, spend most of our time reading code; we need to understand why it was written, how it works, and what it does. The sooner we understand the code, the sooner we feel confident to change it, so it's very important we do our best to keep the code clean and understandable.
Any developers who care about their work should join our meetups, regardless of their language(s) of choice; there's always something to be learned.
Our events will always focus on how we can be Improving Code!
I often hear something along the lines of "I cannot write tests for that UI code!" as the reason for the lack of unit tests. The fact is, more often than not, we can write tests for what seems to be "UI code". In this talk, we'll explore an approach to either write or refactor UI code so it can be tested more easily. We will NOT cover how to write automated UI tests, though.
