About This Session

Let’s face it…every time we start a new job we have to figure out a new code-base, and that code-base is usually only new for us. Thousands if not millions of lines of code…where do you start?

<p>There really isn’t any “beginning” place. As a manager and team lead I’ll start new folks on easy bug fixes to help them get up to speed. But what I like to see are people taking the initiative to understand the larger picture. </p> <p> So…how do you do that? I’m going to walk you through my process. A process that I’ve used successfully as both a consultant and an architect. When you leave this session you’ll have some tools/techniques you can use to quickly learn a new code-base and help you have more confidence in the modifications you make. </p>
