About My Session

Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks

In this session, we will get down and dirty with clean code. Expanding on Uncle Bob’s teachings this session will give you practical hints and tips to help you practice clean code. We will cover what clean code is, why you should be writing it and how to write it. If you’ve been a victim of “wtf code”, or even guilty of writing it yourself, then this is a must attend talk for you.

This talk came about after attending Clean code course with Uncle Bob. So not Umbraco related but relates to Umbraco because in Umbraco we write code. Too often we make a mess accrue technical debt and just make life difficult for ourselves. The talk covers some basics things we can all implement to give us a more stable and maintainable code base.

Disclaimer: there may be swearing!
