Refactoring and Readability

Refactoring and Readability

Refactoring is:

worth practicing as a discrete skill
bound to an implied value judgement of "better" code
best served with a separate commit workflow
unsafe without automated testing

Readability is:

crucial to code quality
best achieved by "switching hats" during refactoring
to be prioritized over premature optimization.
beneficial to more than just technical debt
