Tutorial: The Mikado Method for making large Scale Refactorings

A session at QCon London 2014

Tuesday 4th March, 2014

9:00am to 4:00pm (GMT)

For any code base there comes a time when you want (or need) to change it. If your changes are extensive, it's easy to get lost in a jungle of dependencies or on a sea of broken code. Ultimately, you might just give up and shove it away under the legacy label. Instead of doing that, use ""The Mikado Method,"" a systematic approach to reclaim your code. The method helps you visualize, prepare, and perform business-value focused changes, while delivering, and without having a broken code-base in the process. It enhances team communication, collaboration and learning, and helps individuals stay on track.

Target Audience: Lead developers, architects, programming coaches, or anyone who wants to get some serious hands-on practice on how to work their way out of messy code while keeping the delivery frequency and business value focus.

Requirements: Bring a laptop that can run an IDE (Eclipse, IntelliJ or Visual Studio) and for the 2nd & 3rd part, please bring along your own examples in the form of 'real code' you work with form day to day.

Please not that this tutorial is a very technical workshop and will contain a fair amount of programming.
