How Do I Test This Mess?!?

Wednesday, July 31st, 2019
6:30 PM - 8:30 PM

Presented by

Scott Wierschem

Adding tests to existing code is hard - if not sometimes impossible. The code is often difficult to understand and usually written without testing in mind. Have you ever been afraid of changing code you are familiar with? Imagine being able to confidently refactor code you don't even understand! This session covers three powerful techniques for adding tests to existing code, making it safer to refactor and maintain.

Scott Wierschem helps Java developers get unruly legacy code under control using great refactoring techniques so they can work on fun and rewarding projects.

Park across the street in the parking garage on Elgin (ideally on the 3rd floor) in any spot marked PROS Reserved (but not PROS Priority Reserved), taking a parking receipt as you enter the parking garage. Parking is free after 7:00 PM, so you won't have to pay as you exit. Take the elevator to the 3rd floor of the parking garage (if needed) and walk across the sky bridge. The HJUG meeting will be on the 2nd floor on the right just before you reach the elevator bank.
