Do you want to write code that stands the test of time? Or do you want to perpetuate the nightmare of difficult-to-change code that many software developers face today? Building Maintainable Software offers a pathway to craftsmanship for those who want to do the right thing. In this video, software virtuoso Željko Obrenović introduces a set of guidelines for creating software that meets the gold standard of true maintainability. Each guideline is reviewed in detail, using real-world examples of code that follow—or don’t follow—these important rules.

With these videos, you will:

  • Gain a practical understanding of the ten guidelines critical to building maintainable software
  • Discover what maintainability really means and how it relates to other aspects of software quality
  • Explore why maintainability is especially crucial in the early stages of software development
  • Practice refactoring techniques that turn poor code into code that's compliant with the ten guidelines

Željko Obrenović is a principal consultant at Software Improvement Group (SIG). SIG conducts detailed technical analyses of software-intensive systems, translating technical findings into actionable advice for management. He has been a consultant at Backbase, an assistant professor at the Technical University in Eindhoven, and a researcher at CWI in Amsterdam.
