Refactoring your code, like magic with Sourcery

Episode #266, published Fri, May 29, 2020, recorded Thu, May 21, 2020.

This episode is carbon neutral.
Refactoring your code is a fundamental step on the path to professional and maintainable software. We rarely have the perfect picture of what we need to build when we start writing code and attempts to over plan and overdesign software often lead to analysis paralysis rather than ideal outcomes.

Join me as I discuss refactoring with Brendan Maginnis and Nick Thapen as well as their tool, Sourcery, to automate refactoring in the popular Python editors.
