The Software Process and Measurement Cast 623 features my interview with Christian “Dr. Lambda” Clausen, author of Five Lines of Code from Manning Publications. Dr. Lambda delivers advice on why refactoring is a necessity and how to refactor effectively. Clean code is not an option, refactoring is a requirement for being good at coding.

Re-Read Saturday News
Cue the eerie sound effects from low budget science fiction movies that signal time travel. After publishing our re-read of Chapter 19 last week, Steve Tendon sent me a message, “where is chapter 18?” I nearly responded right after chapter 17 but a little voice told me to check. Low and behold, I had not addressed Full-Kitting as Ongoing Executive Activity, otherwise known as chapter 18. Today, we go back in time and review the first chapter in Part 6 of Tame your Work Flow by Daniel Doiron and Steve Tendon.
