You know you should be testing all the time, but do you know why you are testing all the time? One of the main benefits of testing all the time is that it lets you refactor with impunity. Unfortunately too many times we leave the “refactor” out of the red-green-refactor. In this talk I will convince you that you should be refactoring all the time and I’ll show you some of the techniques on how you can do it. With good refactoring techniques and regular refactoring even the hairiest of codebases can be tamed.
