Code smells and refactoring - Singapore Java User Group

Published on: Thursday, 2 February 2017

Speaker: Stanly Lau


One of the main contributor to keeping business easy to respond to change is maintainable software. Like a garden without care, the nature of software development tends to decay code. The time spent reading the code to understand increases while writing code reduces and customers are paying for it. What can we do? This talk shares the impact of unmaintainable software and how to deal with it through the developer skill of code smells & refactoring.
