Object Oriented Refactoring

Refactoring Training

The Object Oriented Refactoring training course teaches students the motivations, pitfalls, and the art of refactoring object oriented solutions. The Object Oriented Refactoring training uses the book Refactoring: Improving the Design of Existing Code as the basis for discussion.

In addition to examining refactoring principles and best practices, the course also teaches students how to perform safe refactoring using Integrated Development Environments like Eclipse, NetBeans and IntelliJ, and a test-first, test-driven process.

It is ideal to combine the Object Oriented Refactoring with the Test-driven Development course.
