Technical debt is inevitable in Agile software development and rewriting your code every 6 months is not an option. Refactoring is a complex topic that doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all solution. Frontend applications are particularly sensitive because of frequent requirements and user flows changes. New abstractions, updated patterns and cleaning up those old functions – it all sounds great on paper, but it often fails in practice: to-dos accumulate, tickets end up rotting in the backlog and legacy code crops up in every corner of your codebase. So a process of continuous refactoring is the only weapon you have against technical debt. In the past three years, the presenter has explored different strategies and processes for refactoring code. This talk describes the key components of a framework for tackling refactoring and reducing technical debt. It shares some of the learnings accumulated along the way. Hopefully, this will help you in your quest of improving the code quality of your codebases.
