  • Does Your Team Prevent You From Refactoring?
    JAN 23, 2020 Written by M. Scott Ford

    During a recent Legacy Code Rocks virtual meetup, a community member shared that a senior colleague had recently rejected a request to change a variable name. I used to encounter resistance to refactoring all the time, but since starting Corgibytes, I don’t come across it as often. But I’m curious if there are others out there who have encountered this sentiment, and I’m especially curious about how they’ve dealt with it.

    Software systems can find themselves in a state of "rock bottom." When we encounter projects like these, we need to channel our inner monk. Start where you are. Eliminate the shame that goes with having a messy codebase. Embrace that your system is worth investing in and start making it better from where you are today.
