Refactor to the Limit!

Wednesday, April 27, 2016
6:30 - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Jim Bethancourt

Want (or need) to refactor your codebase, but feel kinda stuck? Quit working so hard and be lazy! In this presentation, we'll have a show-and-tell of several open source and freely available tools that will help you identify places in your code that can be refactored. You'll also learn about the code smells these tools are sniffing for while we're at it.

Jim Bethancourt is a Sr. Software Developer at Triple Point Technology, and has led the Houston Java Users Group since 2007. He has given talks at the Houston JUG, Houston TechFest, and JavaOne.
