Each of our sessions are digitally broadcast live and feature world-class speakers. Each presentation typically has 30-40 minutes set aside for instruction followed by another 15 minutes or so for Questions & Answers at the end.
About This Session
There are a lot of books, lectures, tutorials, and information readily available to you about clean code and code quality techniques. Developers find it difficult to make the leap from these resources and apply the techniques directly into their code. Why? It seems foreign, unrelatable, and too hard to implement. Let’s fix that.
Code quality focuses on simplicity and expressiveness.
It wipes away unnecessary code. It drives us to design simple, purposeful single pieces of functionality. It emphasizes the “human side” by making it human readable.
When we shift our mindset to build code in this manner, we make it easier and faster to build, integrate, extend, validate, and maintain. We drive down costs, risks, and bugs. We empower anyone to pop into our project and quickly get to work.
In this session, let’s wipe away the confusing jargon and noise. You’ll be armed with practical, easy-to-go-implement-right-now strategies that will immediately simplify and improve the quality of your code.
