Best Practices for Refactoring - Speaker: Nancy Folsom

Refactoring is a term that means to rewrite software to change its design while leaving its external functionality the same. Refactoring is not a new term: it has been around since at least 1990. As an activity, it's been around for as long as software, and we all do it, more or less, frequently. Martin Fowler published his seminal book Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code in 1999 to publicize refactoring. This book is a catalogue of refactoring techniques matched to common software patterns that refactoring can improve. Although the Smalltalk and Java communities have been primary drivers championing refactoring, its techniques can also be applied to our legacy FoxPro applications, too. Use these best practices to keep your applications vital and robust for the next 10 years."
