Refactoring in the 4th Dimension: Michael Feathers

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Time is the 4th dimension. We don't pay enough attention to it. We make assumptions about how changes occur in our code based upon static analysis and tools like the Open/Closed Principle, but we can make our decisions based on actual data: we have version control histories of our code. In this workshop, we will mine several projects and look for early indicators of souring code and evidence of effective refactoring. We will explore the notion that we can learn from the history of our own code. Participants should bring a laptop with git and Ruby 1.8.7 or higher installed
