Refactoring your code - A key step in Agility

Refactoring is one of the core practices in Agile Software Development. Refactoring is based on some core principles that apply to more than writing good code. But, what is refactoring? Why should you do it? How do you go about doing that? What tools are available to successfully refactor your App? In this presentation we will address each of these questions. We will take an examples based approach to look at code that can benefit from refactoring. We will discuss how to identify a case for refactoring. Then we will use tools to help us refactor.
