Code Inspections

David Bernstein

Learn a bunch of techniques for working in your code.

It’s easy to be overwhelmed by newly inherited legacy code. Legacy code can be difficult to work with, and so it can be helpful to have an extra set of eyes and a whole bunch of techniques for dealing with it. I can help review your software to identify areas of risk and create approaches for mitigation.

From Mob to Symphony: A Mob Composing Workshop

Jeff Langr

Not a programmer? Learn firsthand the joy of a PubMob. Come compose...

Mob programming is 'everyone in a room working on the same thing at the same time,' per Woody Zuill. Outrageous! Yet teams find mob programming a fun way to collaboratively build and deliver high-quality software. Some teams even say they go faster.

In this session, we'll mob to collaboratively compose a short song. Even if you know little about music, you'll feel firsthand how participating in a mob can reduce your anxiety and help you contribute quickly.

Intro to TDD — From Zero to FizzBuzz

Jon Reid

Red-Green-Refactor and the Three Laws of TDD

Let’s use the simplest programming puzzle, FizzBuzz, to learn the fundamentals of test-driven development. By simplifying the problem, we can concentrate on the nuances of what goes into TDD. You’ll experience the Red-Green-Refactor cycle, and the Three Laws of TDD.

Legacy Open Source Fridays

Amitai Schleier

Modernize some famous Open Source legacy code.

Two decades ago, a lone-genius project made the internet more secure and inspired a generation of programmers. Two years ago, it came back to life as a collaborative effort. This historically significant codebase needs plenty of mending and many new features, while also presenting some unusual constraints to focus our decision-making. Contribute to Open Source, enjoy the cumulative effect of your efforts, and gain new insights into your legacy code.

Strangle Your Legacy Code

Amitai Schleier

Extend the useful life of valuable software when it's hard to change....

This hands-on session is for developers who work with valuable code that doesn't feel easy or safe to change. That's a lot of us. We'll get to know the Strangler application pattern by test-driving new features into real (and semi-famous) legacy code -- without needing to touch that code at all. By the end of the session, we're familiar with the basic workings of a Strangler, when to consider using one, and what to watch out for when we do.

TDD Paint by Numbers

Jeff Langr

Your first TDD experience: Learn refactoring & the Red-Green-Refactor Cycle.

Learn TDD the easy way with a TDD Paint by Numbers session, where the tests are already written for you--you fill in the code and keep it in the confines of the tests. Sessions are continually available in numerous programming languages, and I'll be keeping the katas fresh.

TDD Paint by Numbers in Xcode

Jon Reid

Learn the Red-Green-Refactor cycle of TDD, without writing the tests.

Learn TDD the easy way with a TDD Paint by Numbers session. The tests are already written for you! You'll work in the production code. Since the tests are written, you’ll experience the meaty payoff of TDD. Namely, adding new behavior incrementally, and refactoring to keep the code clean.
