LJC Unconference 2019

IBM Southbank (SE1 9PZ)

This is a placeholder for the event, please register on the Eventbrite site: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/ljc-unconference-2019-tickets-79310988301 The London Java Community (LJC) hosts a 'unconference' every year that allows developers to come together for a full day of discussions, sharing experiences, learning and spending time with our peers in the industry. This is the 12th unconference we've hosted and it's most certainly the premier event of our user group. This year we're sculpting the event on JCrete®, arguably the best Java unconference in the world. What is an Unconference? An unconference is a loosely structured, participant-driven meeting. It does not follow the traditional conference program structure. You decide what you want to talk about and which topics you want to discuss. The unconference starts with an empty schedule. No topics are mandated, no separations are made between “speakers” and “audience”. All participants work out a schedule by suggesting, planning, holding and evaluating sessions, collaboratively.

Refactoring into Chain of Responsibility Workshop

***This is a placeholder for the event being run on Eventbrite. Please sign up with your full name at https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/refactoring-into-chain-of-responsibility-workshop-tickets-80886532797 *** Refactoring into Chain of Responsibility Workshop Poker Hands are put into sequential order and the player who holds the highest one wins. Let’s make fun of it then and perform some refactorings of code that identifies what poker figure a given player holds. We will transform a set of nested if-else statements into a nice chain of responsibility classes (Straight Flush, Four of a Kind, Full House, etc). This way the chain of classes put into sequential order will figure out the score a given player holds. All we can promise during this refactoring workshop is definitely no bluffing - just pure focus on code transformations. BTW: Did you know that real poker players are very rarely bluffing? We will use Java 1.8 and IntelliJ IDE tool during the workshop. You do not need an IntelliJ ‘s licence as the Community Edition is enough. Become acquainted with poker rules if you haven’t played it so far, because business perspective and understanding existing code is the initial step for any refactoring. Here are the sources to install in order to perform the live-refactoring: https://github.com/wlodekkr/chain-of-responsibility The goal of the workshop is to practice refactoring techniques and experience increasing code quality and readability. About the speaker Włodek Krakowski is an independent technical trainer specializing in maintaining code quality through refactoring. His main interest is taking care of delivering valued software from different perspectives. He writes a blog at www.refactoring.pl. Agenda: 6pm: Doors open. 6.30pm: Refactoring into Chain of Responsibility Workshop 9pm: Finish This event is organised by RecWorks on behalf of the London Java Community.
