September 21, 2010 @ 7:00pm – The ROI of Refactoring: Lego vs. Play-Doh

Description

Refactoring is one of the most powerful tools for improving the intrinsic quality of any code base. Yet, as important as refactoring is, non-technical business stakeholders tend to see little value in the practice. After struggling for a decade to articulate refactoring in such a way that the ROI was obvious, I finally stumbled upon an analogy that seems to work: Building with Lego vs. Play-Doh. In this presentation I will demonstrate the techniques I use to turn an apprehensive room of business owners into the biggest supporters of refactoring in your organization.

Neil Green is currently a Technical Team Lead at Silverpop. He formerly served as Web Team Lead at Incomm and Principal User Interface Engineer for AutoTrader. By day, he works with Java and HTML/CSS/JavaScript to build browser based RIA’s. By night, he tinkers with Scala and Flex on his own pet projects. Neil was born and raised in the sunny islands of the Bahamas, and often wonders why he isn’t living on a beach drinking rum instead of being stuck in traffic on 285.

Payment Processing on the Web – Behind-the-Scenes

Jan 20, 2015

Mystified by MIDs, TIDs, Interchange Rates, Chargebacks, AVS results, Merchant Acquirers, PANs, Payment Gateways, or ISOs? Curious about Apple Pay or the latest industry changes with EMV (chip-and-signature credit cards)? Learn the nuts-and-bolts of payment processing on the web and walk away with a plethora of resources to use on your next eCommerce or payment processing project.

During this presentation, Joshua will discuss what actually happens behind-the-scenes and the various parties involved with processing a credit card transaction. He’ll outline best practices – both technical and operational – for achieving a secure, compliant, and robust processing environment and share key lessons learned while building the Patientco Patient Payment platform. Finally, Joshua will briefly touch on merchant fee structures and how to obtain the best processing rates.
