[B/E] Impactful Refactors: Refactoring for Readability

A session at Full Stack Toronto Conference 2016 - #fstoco

Tuesday 18th October, 2016

2:00pm to 2:40pm (EST)

We have no problems justifying a refactoring effort when it improves performance or eliminates a code smell. What if I told you there's a way your refactoring could be even more impactful? One of the most costly and time-consuming things we do is on boarding. It takes an incredible amount of effort to bring a developer up to speed on a new codebase. In this talk, we’ll see three real-world readability refactors, discuss how you can apply these techniques for the benefit of your current (and future) team members, and how we can continue to program with empathy in mind.
