Refactoring your own code… January 30, 2007Posted by javafoo in java, javanotes, refactoring.
I can’t describe the kind of high I get when refactoring my own code and that too code that was only written a month ago. And when doing it to my own code, I can be as ruthless as I want to be, without coming off as a jerk or being too intrusive. Right now I can’t believe the kind of bloated code I wrote a month ago, I am reprimanding my self (the month old self) and patting my back (the current self), at the same time. Everything looks and feels so much better now, crisp and concise, each in it’s own little silo. So go ahead, don’t be bashful, refactor away, as many times as possible. You will realize how naiive you were just a few weeks ago. Ok I think I will stop now, sorry this is not exactly a technical kind of post. Just a feel good post, something I wanted to share.
