ABOUT THIS SESSION:
Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Mar 18 will be "Making Bad Code Good - 2010 edition", with Dan Wilson.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
This presentation picks up where my 2009 Making Bad Code Good presentation leaves off. Same great concept with all new code samples and techniques.
If you work on a legacy application, or on code built by lots of developers over the years, you likely laugh your way through this presentation. I promise to be thought provoking and challenge the way you write code. In this session, we'll look at lots of code samples and walk through making incremental changes to speed development, reduce errors and make life easier for everyone involved.
Ideas and concepts in this presentation will help you improve your existing applications and write more maintainable code.
