What? What’s in a Name? Increase productivity through effective naming

Many organizations invest considerably in change initiatives for improving software quality and team productivity. However, many change initiatives overlook that developers spend as much as 70% of their time reading and understanding code.
The best place to start improving the understandability and readability of code is to learn how to choose good names. This has high value and low risk, no special tools are required, and you can start now.
This will be a highly collaborative workshop where you share your insights and learn from others through reviewing real code.
You’ll leave this workshop ready to look at your code with a newfound appreciation for the importance of naming.
When? Tuesday, April 24th, 2012 from 4:30p.m. to 6:00p.m.

Where? The Communitech Hub (Matrix & Atlas Rooms), 151 Charles Street W, Kitchener, ON N2G 2L9
