Do you believe that face-to-face interaction is the best way to learn? We believe it, too.
At DevChampions, we offer the top quality training for software developers.
We specialize, but are not limited to engineering practices, software architecture, automation and soft skills.
DevChampions center is led by industry practioners (we founded Latvian Software Craftsmanship Community and DevTernity Conference). That lets us choose only the best trainers - we know those who deliver excellent training courses in person.
Most of us have been working with some kind of legacy systems with lots of technical debt. How do we improve the codebase without The Big Rewrite and avoid creating yet another spaghetti monster? That’s what this workshop is about.
In this workshop, we will work together on a legacy system. We will approach the problem by creating a new, clean, and truly object-oriented model with modularity, cohesion, and testability in mind. We will introduce the model into the existing application in a secure manner, leaving ourselves an option to withdraw changes at any point in time. Fully automated tests will make sure that both models produce consistent results. EventStorming will help us set priorities right and understand the business impact of our changes.
Finally, we’ll get a solid, clean, and object-oriented code aligned with the company's goals and agile software development best practices.
During this workshop we will be working with a C4 model. If you don’t know it, do not worry, it’s simple enough to master in 15 minutes. This workshop is technology agnostic, but we will focus on the backend architecture and services.
Surprising as it is, this workshop can also help Product Owners and Managers to communicate with their teams. At least that’s the experience we’ve had so far.
