THIS SESSION HAS REQUIREMENTS AND INSTRUCTIONS LISTED BELOW

Have you ever written JavaScript that reeked, but you couldn’t quite figure out why? Or have you written code and immediately knew that it wasn’t good, but didn’t know a better way?

Your JavaScript may pass JSHint, but that doesn’t mean it’s legit.

“A code smell is a surface indication that usually corresponds to a deeper problem in the system” —Martin Fowler

Most developers can smell brittle and fragile code a mile away, but it takes time and training to combat against these smells. Code smells scream to be refactored.

In this session we will discuss various common smelly code snippets and discuss techniques on how we can eliminate and protect against their pungent odors creeping into your codebase.
