"Good Code is not what you think it is..."

May 11, 2016


Many programmers are dedicated, or even obsessed, with writing “good” code. Often we follow certain patterns and practices because we believe they are the best solution for the problem, or because the “experts” tell us to. In this session, we will discuss what good code really is and what benefits it brings.

The talk covers concepts related to code readability, and walks through a number of examples.

Presented by Jane Prusakova

I am a software architect and developer, an Agile proponent, and a great believer in building valuable software that users love to use. As a Principal Consultant for Improving, I help clients improve code quality, install better practices, and help teams become more productive.

My technical focus is large back-end systems, high-performance and high-reliability, and working with vast amounts of data.
