Making Your Code Sweet:
How to Identify and Fix Code Smells
Nick Carpenter, Senior Developer
excuse me, but your code smells
Like the seven primary smells that your nose can identify, code smells can be classified to help you understand the type of issues that may be present in source code.
Refactoring is a critical developer skill that helps cleans up the smells and keeps the code from collapsing under its own weight.

Come and see how to recognize the code smells that may have crept into your code and how to refactor them away.
