5 Whys Challenge – Eyal Golan

This is the third one, and if the last two didn’t push you towards it, you should go register to the conference immediately after reading this one.

Today’s “5 Whys” challenge is answered by Eyal Golan, who will talk about “Working with Legacy Code – This Is Reality”. You can already see that Eyal knows what he’s talking about because he’s wearing protective glasses.

Why should people come to the conference?

People should come to the conference to listen and learn how others solve problems and do their agile work habits. They should come to the conference to learn and improve the way they work. To get new ideas and how to implement them.

Why should people come to my session?

Most people struggle with legacy code so they will fill very “attached” to the topic. I’m going to talk about the philosophy of working with legacy code, as well as some good points and examples. I am a passionate clean coder and hope to pass some of it to you.

Why did I choose this topic?

I love sharing what I am doing. I had the opportunity to work on “from scratch” code over the last few years. But now I am lucky to work on legacy code and make it better and cleaner. I have experience in developing clean code, and working with legacy code is a big challenge. I prefer giving a presentation on things I do and actually more practical.

Why do I think you should also go to “Designing with Tests”  session by Dror Helper and “About Test Smells” by Lior Friedman?

As a “test addict” and TDD practitioner, I would suggest going to either “Designing with Tests” or “About Test Smells”. Both issues I work daily. As a scrum master, the meeting I mostly enjoy facilitating, is the Retrospective. So I would also recommend going to the “Retrospective Session”, which is interactive.

Why did the chicken cross the road?

Because no bridge was designed.

They say that agile practitioners have forgotten the dark art of technical excellence. That they are talking about stand-ups and retrospectives and all that fluffy stuff.

Not in this conference, mister! Developers have lots to dig into.

Who’s next? We’ll see (actually I know, I’m posting them in the order I received them, so I can shame others into action Smile, you know who you are!)

Now really, GO REGISTER.
