Writing software is an art, a science, and always, always a work in progress. We learn how to write better code by learning about new features, but also by reviewing and finding ways to improve code already written. In this session, Steven will review code he and others at Insum Solutions have written, exploring techniques and the balancing acts we often have to perform to reach our objective: making our users happy!
