Presentation: "Refactoring to Patterns"

Time: Thursday 16:50 - 17:50

Location: Franciscan I & II

Abstract: Refactoring to Patterns is the marriage of refactoring -- the process of improving the design of existing code -- with patterns, the classic solutions to recurring design problems. Refactoring to Patterns suggests that using patterns to improve an existing design is better than using patterns early in a new design. This is true whether code is years old or minutes old. We improve designs with patterns by applying sequences of low-level design transformations, known as refactorings.  In this talk, Joshua will go through the most important ways of improving your architecture with refactoring and patterns, taken from his best-selling book of the same name.
