Embrace change

May 17, 2016 · Or Yehuda, Israel

Please join us on this evening to hear two interesting lectures talking about changes - a change in code and a change in mindset.

Introducing the Mikado Method

Speaker: Itzik Saban


How many times have you tried to fix something in your codebase, breaking a sweat as the changes spiral out of control? How can you make big changes to code without ending up with the entire engine in pieces on the floor?

This is the perfect moment for the Mikado Method to enter the scene. It’s a structured way to make significant changes to complex systems.

When you perform small changes, you can keep them in your head, but for larger ones, the chances of getting lost in a jungle of dependencies, or on a sea of broken code, increase dramatically. The Mikado Method can help you make the desired changes over several iterations and increments of work, without ever having a broken codebase during the process.


I consider myself as a good software design freak, with more than 15 years in software development and teams mentoring. 
Specialized in Agile Programming Practices such as Clean-Code, TDD, Refactoring (legacy code), Continuous Integration, OOP and more, I am now spreading the word among the software development industry.

Old Dog, New Tricks

Speaker: Nimrod Argov


For years I have gotten used to putting out fires after code changes and having parts of the product that can never be touched. The uncertainty and fear wore me down. Getting to know TDD, Clean Code and other methodologies was the start of a process of gaining confidence and a good night’s sleep. Making the transition wasn’t always easy. 

This is the story of what it took for me to let go of my old habits, teach myself new tricks and transition into code craftsmanship.


Nimrod is a software developer, working at Wix on a configuration system for Wix's microservice architecture. In his spare time he likes to read about how things work, play the piano and tinker with electronic boards.

    Do new technologies excite you? Do you constantly seek for new programming languages? That's really a great thing, and we absolutely encourage that, but what about the basics? When was the last time that you enhanced your development skills? In this group, we will try to enhance our basic skills. We will gather once in a few weeks to talk about things like clean code principles, TDD issues, ...
