Professional Refactoring in Visual Basic

In this one-of-a-kind book, Microsoft MVP Danijel Arsenovski shows you how to utilize the power of refactoring to improve the design of your existing code and become more efficient and productive. He provides you with a hands-on approach so you'll quickly learn how to manage and modify your code with refactoring tools and features. You'll also discover how to perform unit testing, refactoring to patterns, and refactoring to upgrade legacy Visual Basic code.

As you progress through the chapters, you'll build a prototype application from scratch. You'll then utilize refactoring techniques to transform the code into a properly designed, enterprise-level application. Arsenovski walks you step-by-step through each process while offering expert coding tips. You'll then be able to apply this information to real situations that arise as a result of company expansion, policy changes, or similar business decisions.

Synopsis:

Professional Refactoring in Visual Basic is a hands-on approach to refactoring in Visual Basic. This book teaches advanced level programmers how to apply refactoring techniques in Visual Basic, taking into account the specifics of VB as a programming language. A prototype application dealing with a rental car business is built from scratch. The application is then refactored into a properly designed, enterprise level application, step by step, while explaining different code smells and refactoring transformations. Most of the outlined transformations are motivated by credible, real world scenarios that come up as a result of company expansion, change of policy, or similar business decisions. The text will also contain formal definitions of refactoring techniques, something that can be consulted as a reference in real world situations.

Topics covered include:

Assembling a Refactoring Toolkit

Application prototype details

Option Explicit

Option Strict

Error Handling

Dead Dode

Method Level Refactoring

Extract Domain Classes

Member Refactoring

Replacing Conditional Code with Polymorphism

Refactoring and Patterns

Layered Architectures

Refactoring Legacy VB Code

Factory Method
