refactoring (a fancy programmer word for cleaning house)


Had a great visit with my Dad the last couple of days.  We drove around a lot with the twins and just spent time together.  I’m very fortunately that we are still able to spend to do this.  My wife was fortunate in that she had a quiet house for two days in a row!

Today after lunch, I rolled up my sleeves and got back to the refactoring.  It wasn’t too easy but not as painful as I thought it would be.  Most of the issues were self inflicted and I finally got the delegation and observing right.  After about 7 hours of work, all of the unit tests are back to normal and everything appears to be OK.  This is pretty incredible since code base just went through the equivalent of a heart & lung transplant.  I’ll be keeping a close eye on things and, to be sure, will start migrating the unit tests over to Apple’s protocol.

Tomorrow, if I have time, it will be time to start on the unit test migration.  But for now, it’s New Years Eve.  There are a number of friends I haven’t seen in a while.  It will be great to get out and about.
