Dmitry has been programming since DOS times. He spent the last 15 years or so in Java lands, most recently working with server-side Kotlin.
Gilded Rose Refactoring Kata
Gilded Rose code kata is an exercise designed to practice your refactoring skills. It simulates a legacy project in which you need to improve the code so you can add a new feature. In this live coding session, I will use the Kotlin version of the kata to show how a sequence of incremental improvements can make a difference, taking program design to a better and more functional place. You will see a few refactoring heuristics, IntelliJ tips and tricks, and design emerging from seemingly chaotic code.
