February 26, 2020, 6PM: Best of "Defensive Coding in C#" – Allen May

Allen May will explore the highlights of Deborah Kurata’s “Defensive Coding in C#” course from Pluralsight. We will explore writing clean code, creating unit tests, building clear methods, and preparing for the unexpected.

Allen will also demonstrate features within Visual Studio Code that will allow you to write defensive code (in your preferred programming language) for free.

Bio: Allen is a full stack application developer with CareSource, maintaining an internal .NET/C#/MVC reporting application. He has over 20 years of IT experience, in operations, database, and web/application development roles. He is an advocate for the Dayton tech community, the organizer of the Dayton Web Developers group and co-organizer for the New To The Web & Dayton .NET Developers groups.

November 20, 2019, 6PM: Clean Code and Test Driven Development with Will Land

Clean Code with Will Land

“Land” will walk us through an overview of “Clean Code” and how it’s connected to TDD (test driven development). We will then have a group coding session at the end to test drive the babysitter kata.
This is meant to be a very interactive meeting, with lots of discussion around coding standards and best practices.

About Will Land (who goes by the name “Land”):
Land learned software mostly in a non-traditional format, partially self taught as well as a student/ teacher training. He had the opportunity to code with Uncle “Bob” at a code retreat event that supported the incubator program.
