Bites & Brew: Refactoring Untouchable Code

  • Dev9

Overview

Have you ever been afraid to touch a section of code? Tackle your fear head-on with Dev9.

Share some local brew, good eats, and a compelling discussion on read by review, documenting, unit testing, and refactoring.
We will cover strategies to ensure your code changes are safe and improve your codebase. In addition to diving into a complex section of code, we will talk about less intrusive tactics to ensure that you truly understand unwieldy code before you clean it up.

These tactics include tips for reviewing pull requests, documenting code, unit testing code and refactoring code.

We will also be practicing MOB programming(Pairing programming as a group). In the age of microservices, come prepared to make micro-refactors to intimidating code.
