What we're about

We are a diverse community of software professionals who are passionate about making great software together. We are committed to continuously learning better ways of producing software, sharing with and learning from each other, and setting the standard for ethics, quality and mutual respect for all.

Regardless of our differences, we choose to be defined by what brings us together, rather than what sets each of us apart.

Refactoring Safely without Tests

Bellevue College North Campus

"We can't refactor because we don't have tests." "We can't write tests because of how the code is factored." Teams often feel trapped in this loop, assuming that getting out would require a massive rewrite or other heroic efforts. We'll talk about a way to break this loop, no matter how messy & convoluted the code is. Then we'll apply it to some real-world code. Bring your gnarly code if you have it. Bio --------------------------------------------------------------- Jay Bazuzi is a developer who loves legacy code. Dinner (Pizza and Drinks) are graciously provided by SmartSheet JetBrains Licenses raffled on coding nights!
