From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Prefactoring is the application of experience to the creation of new software systems. Its relationship to its namesake refactoring is that lessons learned from refactoring are part of that experience.
These guidelines include:
- "When you're abstract, be abstract all the way"
- "Splitters can be lumped more easily than lumpers can be split"
- "Use the client’s language"
