When building a house, good architecture and craftsmanship together form the needed crucial elements for success. The same pattern applies to software development. As the previous sessions focused on the architectural part of software development, this session will strongly focus on often forgotten but very important areas of coding.
You will learn why naming is really difficult if done right, why coding and style guidelines are crucial, code structuring, exception handling and why other elements of coding often define the tipping point between success and failure of projects. Following the principles of software craftsmanship will allow you to end up with better maintainability and extensibility of your software and the success of the project in the end.
All 3 Clean Code presentations provide great value by themselves, but taken together are designed to offer a holistic approach to successful software creation.
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.
