Phantastic Code Smells And How To Find Them

Speaker: Arne Mertz

Audience level: Beginner | Intermediate

Code smells are subtle or not so subtle hints that there may be problems within our code. Some code smells are universal and independent of the language we use, others are C++ specific. Usually, a code smell represents violations of basic design principles or negligence of idioms and patterns that would make the code easier to grasp and maintain.

In this talk, we will see examples of code smells from real code bases, and how they can be identified and fixed.
