    When should you refactor code and when should you not do it?  How do you make sure you have adequate test case coverage?  What are the strategies, techniques, and patterns for refactoring existing code?  And how do you get your boss to agree to let you spend the time to refactor code?  This presentation will cover these questions and more.  Topics covered include Acceptance/Approval Testing, Design Patterns, Code Smells, Refactorings, and Tools.

     

    For a deeper dive into related topics of Mob Programming, TDD, and software craftsmanship, join Ethan at the Mob Programming Conference April 12-13 in Burlington, MA.  Several of the presentations are on refactoring.

  • Have you ever wanted to deploy hundreds if not thousands of virtual servers with the single click of a button. Who hasn't? With a little JSON and the utility Terraform by HashiCorp, this power can be yours. 

    By deploying your infrastructure as a service, you can not only keep track of what resources are where, but also easily adjust or deploy additional resources without the need for navigating cumbersome user interfaces.

  • Java Modules are the future. However, our enterprise applications have legacy code, a lots of it. How in the world do we migrate from the old to the new? What are the primary challenges?

    In this presentation we will start with an introduction to modules and learn how to create them. Then we will dive into the differences between unnamed modules, automatic modules, and explicit modules. After that we will discuss some key limitations of modules, things that may surprise your developers if they're not aware of. Finally we will discuss how to migrate current applications to use modules.

  • While "DevOps" is a very overrated and misused marketing term, we have many DevOps stories from around the world proving that shared responsibility between Dev and Ops can work out really well.

    A key component of DevOps is open communication and feedback loops. Monitoring data is one source of these feedback loops. Too often, however, this is only done in Operations for firefighting and root cause analysis. Kevin will discuss approaches of Shifting-Left Performance into the Continuous Delivery Pipeline to give earlier and faster performance, scalability and architectural feedback to developers, testers, architects and business.

    The presentation will include some hands-on experience on how to bake monitoring into DevOps tool chains such as JIRA, Bitbucket, Jenkins, Git, HipChat, JMeter, … - there should be something for everyone who wants to learn some new tips & tricks on how to become more “DevOps’y”
