The Rockville .NET User Group (RockNUG) will be holding their next meeting on Wednesday, March 12th, 2008 from 6:30PM-9:00PM.  This month, they'll be having a pretty interesting topic on refactoring in C# with Jonathan Cogley.  I've had my refactoring and agile boots on lately, so I can definitely relate.  I don't know what I would do though without my Resharper 4.0 Nightly Builds...  I've had a few issues here and there, but nothing to discourage me from continuing usage.

Anyhow, here are the details:

Refactoring in C# - Bad code to better code
presented by Jonathan Cogley

What could be more fun on a Wednesday evening than critiquing some bad
code and making it better? :) Come along to learn how to clean code like
the Thycotic team. What do we look for? How do we take small steps to
keep it working? What tips and tricks make it easier? This session
will be code, code and more code (and a few unit tests of course!).

Jonathan Cogley is the founder and CEO of thycotic - a software
development company operating in the Washington DC Metro Area with
offices in Vienna, Virginia. Jonathan has worked for many interesting
companies over the last decade as a software consultant in both the UK
and the USA. His company has released various .NET projects and APIs
including an implementation of Remote Scripting for .NET, a database
platform independent data access layer for ISVs and various tools for
the Test Driven Developer. Test Driven Development (TDD) is the
cornerstone of the thycotic approach to software development and the
company is committed to innovate TDD on the Microsoft .NET platform with
new techniques and tools. Jonathan is also a columnist and editor for
the popular ASP.NET Web site, ASPAlliance. He is an active member in the
developer community and speaks regularly at various .NET User Groups,
conferences and code camps across the US. Jonathan is recognized by
Microsoft as an MVP for C# and has also been invited to join the select
group of the ASPInsiders who have interactions with the product teams at

The schedule for the event is as follows:

Hope to see a great crowd there!  I'm looking forward to it.
