Are you tired of repeatedly addressing the same code issues and therefore wasting valuable time during code reviews? Do inconsistent code styles and persistent bugs plague your codebase? Join our hands-on lab and unleash the power of Error Prone and Refaster to revolutionize your Java projects. In this session, we'll dive deep into Error Prone and Refaster, equipping you with the tools to automate code improvements, enforce coding standards, enhance code consistency, and eliminate bugs and anti-patterns. By leveraging Error Prone, you'll uncover bugs and potential issues within your codebase and receive automated suggestions for fixes. The fixes can be for any simple task, such as eradicating recurring bugs, addressing anti-patterns, and enforcing coding best practices and consistent styles. With the knowledge gained from this session, you'll be equipped to implement these automation techniques in your own codebase, saving you and your colleagues invaluable development time. Don't miss this opportunity to transform your codebase, increase efficiency, and eliminate time-consuming manual interventions. Join us in this hands-on lab and embark on a journey towards cleaner, more reliable, and consistent Java projects.
