Refactoring - Improving the Design of Existing Code
Steve Hayes
Khatovar Technology

Refactoring is one of a group of methodologies which is changing the way many programmers work. It is a set of techniques that allow you to feed your improved understanding of the problem domain, architecture and programming idioms back into your existing code. It lets you make your programs better over time rather than worse, which is the usual case.

Adding to RAVE to give more flexible Reports
Glenn Crouch

Versioned Database Access with Interbase
Mathias Burbach

How do you create an IB database that allows you to access the content of a table with its history? How do you create a normal record set out of a change log using stored procedures? This session will show you how, and also cover an administrative tool to maintain table definitions and establish referential constraints, and to create the stored procedures to select, insert delete and update data from the versioned table.

4:30-5:00
