Twelve Ways to Make Code Suck Less

We all have seen our share of bad code and some really good code as well. What are some of the common anti patterns that seem to be recurring over and over in code that sucks? By learning about these code smells and avoiding them, we can greatly help make our code better. Come to this talk to learn about some common code smell and how to improve the quality of code. .

Designing Functional Programs

Functional Programming promotes immutability and the use of higher order functions. For those of us who have designed and architected applications using an imperative style of programming and the object-oriented paradigm, this largely appears like a strange idea. We often ask, how is it practical to apply these ideas, realistically to build practical applications. It turns out it's highly practical but we have to change how we design and how we model our systems. Come to this presentation to think about functional style and how to start viewing design to make better use of this way of programming. .
