2016 – January Meeting

January 7th, 2016 Comments off

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

Where: Prototek    401 NW 10th St.   Downtown OKC


Website: http://prototekokc.com/

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.

November Meeting

November 9th, 2015 Comments off

When: November 10, 2015    11:30 – 13:00

Where: Prototek    401 NW 10th St.   Downtown OKC

Speaker: Kenyatta Clark

Topic: Docker for Java Developers

Producing good software is a goal many of us strive for by honing our skills at design principles, language mastery, architecture, methodologies, and expert use of libraries, frameworks, and platforms.  Satisfied with our code, we then figure out how to deploy it, or we hand it over to an operations team who handles running it in production.

Running software in production is the whole point!  We can apply a lot of our skills and practices from software development to its deployment, and to the infrastructure on which it runs.

Docker is “an open platform for distributed applications for developers and sysadmins” that provides a standardized way to package applications with the specification of their environment.  This means everything from the operating system to the application server is specified in code, and will be identical between your environments.
