Refactoring with Confidence We're finally at a point where we have quite a body of tests built up, and one of the consequences of this that I absolutely love is that we now can begin to refactor and rip apart our code and reorganize it and make it better, to polish it, to change it, and perhaps improve upon it. And of all the benefits that Wallaby provides, this is perhaps one of the greatest benefits. Because it lowered the barrier to testing, we have more tests now. Because we have more tests, we can quickly change things and we can get feedback from those tests and be confident that everything is still okay. So that's what we're going to look at in this module. First, we'll start out looking at what it's like to refactor our test code and how to do that safely. And when I say test code, I don't mean our actual code, I mean the code that contains the tests. Once we've done that, then we'll look at what we can do to safely refactor the actual code, not the test code this time, but the actual code, and how we can fall back on our tests. In the process I'll sprinkle a few extra things about Wallaby, and hopefully get you excited about what you could be doing if you had this flexibility and support, a safety net if you will, with a body of tests in your own applications with Wallaby giving you real time inline information.
In the Groove All right, in this last module I want to show you things that we haven't covered thus far, things that I think will be important as you start to use Wallaby. This module is broken out into a bunch of really short clips and I'll let the titles in the outline on the Pluralsight site speak for itself, and then at the end, I'll recap with some directions you can take after you've completed this course, and some resources you can look at for further information about Wallaby.
