Watch part one of our new video series about refactoring – and be introduced to the four rules of simple design.

Welcome to our video series!

In this episode you can expect the following:

  • An introduction to the 4 rules of simple design. Here's the blog post that Nitish talks through.
  • An introduction to the open source project goby that we'll be using for the entire series.
  • The first refactor on the codebase. The overarching theme is the 4 rules of simple design but we'll be using a range of techniques to refactor, talking through our reasoning as we go.

If you enjoyed the episode, be sure to join us for the next one where we'll be continuing our efforts to improve the codebase.
