Another month, another Berlindroid meetup. In February we have these two talks for you:
-- Vahid Torkaman: BDD and D stands for Design! --
"How writing tests first and specially tests with business goals in mind, can improve the design & architecture of the application. I discuss how it makes the design decisions reasonable and how we do it in our team."
-- Ash Davies: Refactoring legacy code with Kotlin --
"Legacy code can be quite the challenge to manage, often resulting from untested scenarios, quick fixes, or less than successful initiatives. With few developers wanting to deal with it, it can end up with little remaining knowledge of its inner workings.
We can take many learnings from Michael Feathers book on “Working Effectively with Legacy Code”, but we can also use Kotlin migration as an effective tool to leverage the management, reduction, and removal of legacy code in our applications.
In this session, you’ll learn how to get started with Kotlin in your projects, tips and tricks on how to preserve your version control history, some pitfalls when migrating from Java, and what new technologies you can make use of in your journey with Kotlin."
-- How to get in --
Once at the address, go through to the end of the second courtyard, use entrance E on the left side.
The meetup will take place on the 5th floor, and we will try to mark the pathway.
