Topic: Intro to Continuous Delivery

Continuous delivery is a central theme in the DevOps movement, and certainly a central component of the culture. It is the set of engineering techniques, practices, processes, and tools for releasing changes to software services frequently and reliably.

We’ll review the concepts involved in CD, take a look a working CD pipeline for an example application, and discuss how this could apply to other projects.

2016 – January Meeting

When: January 12, 2016    11:30 – 13:00

Where: Prototek    401 NW 10th St.   Downtown OKC

Speaker: Brett Schuchert

Topic: Legacy Refactoring

This is an updated version of a legacy refactoring demonstration. We’ll have a look at some code that is a mess (what code isn’t) and then work through the code using two different approaches. One, using JMockIt – a power mocking tool, the second, plain vanilla legacy refactoring. We’ll compare and contrast the differences and then see how well the power mocking tool holds after the plain old legacy refactoring approach.

We’ll touch on some of the important things to keep in mind when working with legacy code and, more importantly, the smallest unit of reasonable legacy refactoring.
