Gateway Software Symposium
September 28 - 30, 2007 - St. Louis, MO
Maintaining Project Integrity with JDepend, Macker, PMD, Maven, and other open source tools
How many times have you started a new project only to find that several months into it, you have a big ball of code you have to plod through to try to get anything done? How many times have you been the ?new guy? on an established project where it seems like the code grew more like weeds and brambles than a well-tended garden? With a few good structural guidelines and several tools to help analyze the code, we can keep our project from turning into that big ball of mud, and we can salvage a project that is already headed down that path.
This talk will talk about everything from build processes, teamwork, and project structure through versioning, release plans, upgrde strategies, package dependencies, and more. Using real-world scenarios from two projects with 12-15 people working together over a 5-year time span, this presentation will offer advice based on multiple successful deliveries of real software.
