Talk

Removing duplication
YET TO BE SCHEDULED
Topics:
Refactoring, Emergent design, Higher order functions, Code Katas, Duplication, craftsmanship
Level:
Beginner

Detecting and removing duplication effectively is the cornerstone of emergent design and refactoring. Yet we are *never* taught or trained on how to do this. 
In this lab, we will use a combination of teaching techniques to learn to see and remove duplication form code. All hands on exercises will be available in java, javascript, c#, c++ & python.

Exercises will include:
Sparrow decks to train pattern recognition
Paper & Pencil exercises to learn conceptional techiques
Coding exercises to put it all together

Test Driven development is a combination for many microskills and a fluency that allows you to solve problems while focusing on the problem instead of the microskills.
This workshop will endeavor to learn the individual skills as well as build the fuency to use these skills with the additional burden of everyday work.
