Cohesion and Coupling - The Keys To Changing Your Code With Confidence

Cohesion and Coupling - The Keys To Changing Your Code With Confidence

Developers often begrudge how difficult their code is to maintain. They look for new languages, new paradigms and new practices to help them write more maintainable code. But they often gloss over the basics of clean code.

This talks discusses two simple software metrics conceived in the 1960s - cohesion and coupling. These two measurable properties can tell you so much about how readable and maintainable your code really is.

You'll learn how to measure cohesion and coupling, interpret what the measurements mean and how to refactor to improve these metrics and ultimately, the maintainability of your codebase.
