Tech Breakfast - November

Usability - Rules to Better Web Forms
Friday 28th November 2005
8:00am - 11:00am

Are you looking to eradicate bugs and ensure consistency?

Learn how to take control of your code, ensuring large, complex source code can be simplified, cleaned and maintained.

The focus is on the most popular .NET Languages (C#, VB.NET) for both Web Forms and ASP.NET; however, you will learn how to maintain quality code in any language.

As a project or company grows, maintaining code standards throughout your team becomes virtually impossible. Consistent code is crucial to future development and maintenance. Learn how to review your web apps and projects.

The tools we will explore include FX Cop and SSW Code Auditor.

Keep your SQL Server database free from design flaws with SSW SQL Auditor

Are you looking for a consistent and optimised SQL Server database?

Maintaining consistent quality code across a large team can be a challenge. Even when standards are in place, developers can make mistakes that will slip through Quality Assurance. More on SSW SQL Auditor...  

Wardy it Solutions comment on SSW SQL Auditor
...Superior Software for Windows have developed SSW SQL Auditor to focus on SQL Server development practices and check that a wide range of performance and coding practices have been correctly adopted.

SQL Auditor provides the ability to identify issues with database design and development standards prior to the performance of SQL Server being reduced as a result of these bad-practices not being identified.

The checks that SQL Auditor performs range from checking that the maximum row size for a table is less then SQL Servers data page size, to checking that all Stored Procedures contain a standard comment block. For the full testimonial click here!

The Cutting Edge

G'Day Developers!

Do you refactor your code and keep methods short?

Refactoring is all about making code easier to understand and cheaper to modify without changing its behaviour.

As a rule of thumb, no methods should be greater than 50 lines of code. Long-winded methods are the bane of any developer and should be avoided at all costs. Instead, a method of 50 lines or more should be broken down into smaller functions.

NB:  Visual Studio 2005 has refactoring tools built in.
