Great Example of Refactoring: Mathias Verraes

Posted by Andy Huggins on October 02, 2016

I followed a link to an example of refactoring and thought it was a really good example. Shows the basics of refactoring:

  • Name things so that they make sense
  • Extract to named methods to make things easy to read
  • Remove levels of indentation
  • Write tests to prove the success/continued functionality of the app
  • Continue extracting

I really like that Mathias Verraes explains his thinking while he refactors the method, and the Q&A that follows.
