As a professional developer, especially one who works in Ruby, you hear about code quality all the time. You learn that testing your code and making it easy to maintain are the path to success. You know about TDD, BDD, TATFT and LMNOP. You learn to cycle from red to green to refactoring. We all do our best to write quality, maintainable, reusable code. We're all human, though; some of us slip, and some of us have had to work hard at preventing code smells. In this talk, Mark will discuss how he learned to program, how going pro exposed flaws in his coding style, and how he is working to improve his code's quality, sharing some of his old stinky code, the better, refactored versions, and the lessons he has learned in honing his craft.
