Speaking at the Houston .NET User Group this week

I’m speaking at the Houston .NET User Group this Thursday, February 9, at 6:30pm. Click here to find out about location and other details.

I’ll be delivering a brand new session. Check out the title:

The Software Does Not Work? Rewrite it!

What’s this session really about?

Outdated technology? Unmaintainable codebase? Politics? Those are just some of the reasons that cause software rewrites. Whether a rewrite is really what is needed or not, chances are we all work in such projects.

Do we rewrite the entire software? Can we rewrite just parts of it? Where do we start? Can we automate the process?

In the last 15 years, I’ve worked in a variety of such projects. I’d like to share the most important lessons I’ve learned in these projects. In this talk, I’ll share the different types of rewrites and techniques, what I learned from it, and how it changed my way of approaching both software rewrites as well as greenfield projects.

I want your feedback!!

I hope to see some of my readers there! If you do show up there, please rate my session afterwards and provide me some feedback here! Like I said, it’s a brand new session, so I’m looking forward to constructive criticism so I can improve my material.
