Refactoring Workbook

Front Cover
Addison-Wesley Professional, 2004 - Computers - 235 pages

Refactoring has gained widespread acceptance in the software engineering community as a proven means of improving software. Martin Fowler's seminal book on this topic, Refactoring, 0201485672, has been used in the classroom to explain that existing code could be improved and enhanced without significantly altering the fundamental structure of an application. But many find that this concept has a steep learning curve that inhibits its use. In this new book, William Wake offers a more introductory look at this important topic. The author outlines a proven workbook approach to learning and applying refactoring to "everyday" projects. This approach relies on examples that force the student to apply the main concepts of refactoring. As a result, readers gain thorough knowledge of how refactoring can help improve their software.
