Code Archaeology



David Mitchell shows how to create visualizations out of code: building a map for a large, legacy code base, creating visuals without drawing, and explaining a roadmap to bring code under control.


David Mitchell leads VML's technology engineering practices, guiding teams building cutting-edge applications. David is an avid software developer, regularly presenting on programming topics at local and regional conferences (and occasionally at larger events).

About the conference

We are developers that love to grow community, and we love the midwest. So it only makes sense that we would work to grow a developer community here.
