Ajax Experience: Stuart Halloway – Javascript Refactotum

October 25th, 2007

Stuart Halloway speaks again, and it’s entertaining as usual. Get the presentation slides on his blog.

Stuart’s Refactotum presentation encourages the audience to take the leap to make a contribution to an open source project.

How to be a Refactotum

  1. Set aside 4 hours
  2. Choose an open source project
  3. Get edge (the latest source from the repository)
  4. Get metrics
  5. Analyze
  6. Contribute
  7. Submit

Stuart walks us through a Refactotum project in which he made a small change to YUI’s DomCollapse. Along the way, we learn how to use TheFrontSide’s CrossCheck for Javascript unit testing, and get a great refactoring tutorial.
