The Art of Readable Code: Rethink Your Approach to Coding
Presented by: Steve Green
We all have a lofty goal: programming style as documentation. Inspired by Steve McConnel’s “Code Complete,” Uncle Bob’s “Clean Code,” and Andrew Hunt’s “The Pragmatic Programmer,” this session will:
• Review some best practices for writing code in a style that’s easy to create, maintain and understand
• Give you vocabulary for pragmatically evaluating code quality
• Discuss various refactoring techniques, code smells, anti-patterns, and rules of thumb
There will also be a portion where we'll be refactoring a confusing, ugly chunk of code into something beautiful, easy to read and maintain. Examples will be in C#, but coders in any language should be able to follow along and apply the principles discussed.
