Well the Edmonton .Net Users Group had Jean-Paul S. Boodhoo appear again and I was once again blown away. The original title for the night was Enterprise Patterns but it was so much more. The actual main patterns we were shown that I can think of right now were Passive View and Mappers. While that in of itself was a treat more important for me was being shown a full end to end refactoring of existing code. The original code that JP started with was something you would see on your average web site but by the end was a thing of single responsibility beauty.
At the end of the night it almost looked like JP wouldn’t be able to pull it off before security kicked us out but a little smooth talking from Don saved the night. JP was able to pull off a very interesting implementation that has definitely helped continue to open my eyes. Of course JP has been doing that all week for those of us lucky enough to be in his week long development course (of which I’ll be blogging on once it’s all over). But for those of you who have seen JP let me just say to you.. Yes it is as amazing and fun as you think it would be.
So my hat.. well if I had a hat it would be off to Don and JP (and everyone else who helps make the Edmug nights so successful). Thanks guys!
