Brutal refactoring game

The Cluj Napoca Agile Software Meetup Group
Tue, 19 Jun 2012, 15:45 - 17:45 (Add to calendar) GMT
(Exact location not available) , Cluj-Napoca, RO

Find out how to do real refactoring.
Learn why refactoring is good and how to use it.
Find how you can discipline yourself while refactoring all the code smells out of your system.

During two hours we will write code, have fun refactoring a simple problem and then talk about what you learned.

There will be three pomodoros (sessions of 25 minutes) during which you will work in pairs. While coding the facilitator will stop you whenever he spots a coding smell. Adding functionalities is forbidden until you refactor the smell away. After each session we will stop for about five minutes and talk about the progress we are making and the inconveniences we have. At the end we will have a conclusion of about 20 minutes when we will share our experiences for the session.

You will need a laptop with a working and testing environment installed for your preferred language. This event will be language agnostic. Also you should have locally installed a source control software (git, bzr, mercurial etc).
