Within this session you will learn and/or refresh the most important architectural design pattern and best practices to write better code. These patterns and practices build the foundation for writing maintainable application. More advances techniques like Inversion of Control and Dependency Injection are discussed in detail in the 2nd Clean Code presentation.
All 3 Clean Code presentations provide great value by themselves, but taken together are designed to offer a holistic approach to successful software creation. This first session creates the foundation for the 2nd Clean Code presentation on Dependency Injection, as it explains expected base knowledge.
Why writing Clean Code makes us more efficient
Over the lifetime of a product, maintaining the product is actually one - if not the most - expensive area(s) of the overall product costs. Writing clean code can significantly lower these costs. However, writing clean code also makes you more efficient during the initial development time and results in more stable code. You will be presented design patterns and best practices which will make you write better and more easily maintainable code, seeing code in a holistic way. You will learn how to apply them by using an existing implementation as the starting point of the presentation. Finally, patterns & practices benefits are explained.
This presentation is based on C# and Visual Studio 2010. However, the demonstrated patterns and practice can be applied to every other programming language too.
