Description: The whole point of object oriented programming is to create software that is easy to modify and extend. In order to achieve this, we first have to look at why code tends to rot. We have to be able to recognize the code smells that indicate that code rot is occuring. Once we've detected the code rot, we have to apply object oriented principles to refactor the code and eliminate the problem. This course teaches you how, when, and why to refactor.
You'll learn the design principles that lead to good object oriented designs, how to recognize poor designs, how to explain why these designs are poor, and how to refactor them to improve the design.
This course focuses on test driven design to improve software designs. We'll show you how to use a unit testing framework (JUnit, NUnit or SUnit) and how to develop applications test first.
Since the best way to learn these techniques is by using them, the course is organized as 50% lecture and 50% hands-on exercises. These exercises are non-trivial. They have the students develop a real application test first and refactor the application as they go.
Although the course will be presented in Java, students can receive printed copies of the materials in either Java, C# or Smalltalk and can use Java, C# or Smalltalk for the hands-on exercises.Topics:
