Konmari Your Code: Finding Joy in Refactoring
There’s something deeply satisfying about refactoring React components. Refactoring can help us to simplify, create a foundation for the future, and better communicate our intentions for our codebase. But nothing kills your joy like unintentional changes to existing logic! This talk shares some tips and tricks for stress-free refactoring, like aiming for simplification of logic over premature abstraction, and testing behavior without getting bogged down in implementation details. With a little bit of time and intentionality, we can keep the code that brings us joy and refactor all the rest.
