Every first Tuesday of the month is YDN Tuesday in London, a series in which Yahoo! engineers like me give free tech talks in partnership with open source training organisation Skills Matter. (I'm a front-end engineer for Yahoo! Europe based in London.) This time the topic was code generation, a technique that can increase developer productivity, morale, and code quality, among other things.
About 30 people came to hear my talk, which covered:
- Why one might choose to generate code
- The different techniques by which code might be generated
- Tools to use when generating code
- How to get your team to adopt code generation
The slides of my talk are available on Slideshare:
The next YDN Tuesday is Neil Crosby on Rapid Prototyping and Data Munging with Yahoo! Pipes on 1st September. See you there!
