Habit: Start Refactoring Safely

A Habit in the Insight Loop Change Series

Our promise once you successfully implement Start Refactoring Safely:

  • your team can review your code in minutes instead of a day
  • your team will know which code reviews require attention
  • you will introduce fewer bugs on the most common refactorings
  • you become more aware of the risks that lead to bugs
  • you will start building trust with managers and product owners that refactoring can be cheap and safe

Apply team registration code
Subscribe your team to this habit using one of your organization’s pre-purchased registration codes (see how this works).
