Cleaning up Code Smell
Projects often start out simple, but soon become complex and turn into a lose cannon. Organizations are struggling to maintain and evolve software. Poor code quality is a significant part of that problem. Improving the quality of code is critical to success of enterprise projects.
In this presentation we will discuss ways to identify code smell. We will discuss several code smells and how to clean it up. We will also discuss proactive ways to avoid that smell in the first place.
