Utils is a Junk Drawer!
About Frank Webber
College dropout, turned college instructor found computers because everything else in his life was going too well. Forged by the fires of tech support, quality assurance and software development, he now brings technology to the hungry, sullied masses with raw energy, untold empathy and a strong injection of humor. Did I mention humility? Loads of that too.
Nearly all our larger scale applications end up with a utils folder, module, or class. We all know them as our project's junk drawers. The wayward place for motley code. In this talk we will explore these junk drawers, come to know their stories, and lay to rest the question: Does having a junk drawer in my application make everything better or worse?
