Announcement: NDDNUG – Refactoring To Patterns

July 6, 2008

On Wednesday, July 9th, I’ll be giving a talk at the North Dallas .NET User Group called “Refactoring to Patterns (Not the Book)”. It’s not going to be some dry, academic talk with and bunch of UML and “Hello World” examples but an example using “real world” code like what you and I work with in our every day lives. The main patterns we’ll focus on for this web application are Model-View-Presenter and Adapter. My intent is to show the things that I’ve discovered in journey towards better, more maintainable code and provide ways to apply that knowledge in a realistic fashion. This is going to be a code intensive talk and, hopefully, a very interactive one.

Here’s the sign up form – I hope to see you there.

UPDATE: Here’s a link to the Google Code repository that contains both a start and end copy of the solution so you can see and try the refactoring that was demonstrated.

Announcement: NDDNUG – Automated Unit Testing

July 29, 2007

I’m going to have another chance to refine my “real world unit testing” talk. I’ll be presenting at the North Dallas .Net User Group this Wednesday (August 1) at 6:30pm. The topic will cover unit testing, dependency injection and mocks/stubs using NUnit and RhinoMocks. The talk is VERY demo intensive and should be fun as well as informative. You can sign up here to attend – the pizza is free and the talk will certainly be interesting.

UPDATE: Here are the files I used for my presentation: PowerPoint and source.
