Ignoring Null and Five Other Horrible Things Most Developers Do
Let’s face it. They’re there. We try to pretend they’re not, but they lurk out in the open, quietly destroying our code quality. We chug along writing our code and contribute to the growing pile of technical debt, knowing it but refusing to acknowledge. Why? Because most languages encourage us to do it wrong. Handling of nulls, date/time, exceptions, logging, strings, and boxing objects are all covered in this talk. Attendees should expect to learn how many modern languages encourage anti-patterns in these six areas and what they can do to write better code through awareness.
