Session 1: Writing Better Code by Jason Bock (Magenic)

Jason spent the first few minutes going over what makes good code and what makes bad code before jumping into (in my opinion) the best part of the talk, where he shows bad code on screen and has the audience discuss why it's bad. Most of the time, he gets the expected answer, but there are the occasional curveballs.

After spending some time on the code examples, Jason covers our motivation for writing good code (productivity, maintenance, being able to sleep at night, etc...) and then discusses how to write better code, along with offering some tips and techniques for doing so.  Excellent session.

If you haven't seen Jason give this talk before, and you happen to be in or near the Twin Cities area, he will also be presenting the same talk (with slightly less time constraints) at the first Twin Cities Developers Guild Meeting on July 8th.
