Object Oriented Design Master Class, London Aug 21-22This summer's run of budget-friendly weekend master classes in software craftsmanship ends with a workshop on object oriented design on August 21-22.
In this very hands-on course, you'll learn about OO design principles (S.O.L.I.D. and more), using real code examples to illustrate how to refactor designs that violate these principles. You'll also get practical experience of using code analysis tools to measure OO design quality and detect problems more easily, even in large code bases. The workshop will also give you a chance to apply simple OO analysis and design techniques in a test-driven approach to development, as we as looking at how up-front design can be balanced with refactoring to produce optimal designs without falling into the shark-infested waters of "Big Design Up-Front" and "no conscious design at all".
As with all the workshops I'm running this summer, there'll be the minimum of talk from me and the maximum of hands-on practical experience and learning by doing, working in pairs with other attendees.
And - as if the price wasn't good enough already - everyone who attends both the TDD and refactoring courses will get to go on this one absolutely FREE. I must be mad! Book your place now before I change my mind!
