Teams face many challenges to keep a sustainable and constant pace of refactoring. In many cases, this is due to oversight of some very basic guidelines and ground rules to enable a "refactoring-friendly" environment.
In this session, I'll build on my 10-year journey doing successful refactoring of poor code and present necessary ground rules and practical guidelines for enabling sustainable refactoring. I've clustered these guidelines into three high level categories:
  • Team development habits in maintaining old code
  • Enabling a configuration management environment
  • Making refactoring effort visible and trackable
Whether you're a technical person working on enhancing poor code or a manager sponsoring this activity, you'll walk away with a very good background information to enable a sustainable refactoring environment and eventually a high quality product code.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Explain key challenges to refactoring poor code
  • Learn about pre-requisites teams should take into consideration to enable sustainable and continuous refactoring
  • Understand how visibility can help sustain continuous refactoring
