Matt will share lessons learned while working on VMware's largest web application, the vSphere Client. As part of the team's ongoing initiative to retire legacy frameworks and refresh the web stack with modern tools and user experience, developers have various opportunities to refine past practices that can slow us down and be just downright tedious.
Matt will walk through a hands on refactoring challenge where the team was faced with the pressure of updating 1000s of lines of code manually for an API change. So tearing a page from computer science days, he will dive into some programming tricks to spare the team from what would otherwise be weeks of monotonous technical debt cleanup work.
Using NodeJS, will explore the abstract syntax tree (AST), TypeScript parsing rule, DOM re-generation, and highlight some of the fun side projects we enjoy.
