How Refactoring Helps Bulletproof Your Application

IBM i programmers want (and need!) to write better and more robust software.  But many don’t know all of the principles needed to make their software fully robust.  Do you (or does your manager) doubt the value of refactoring your code into a modular design? This session goes in-depth about how you save time and create higher quality programs by refactoring into small, independent routines.

We will discuss how this improves your ability to test and maintain your application over time, saving you tons of time in the long run.

 This session is co-presented by expert developer, Scott Klement, and expert tester, Yvonne Enselman to help you see it from both perspectives.


1. Understand why refactoring is critical to creating robust (“bulletproof”) applications.
2. Understand other concepts needed to create robust applications
3. Learn testing principles needed to ensure your applications are robust
