Let’s gamify refactoring

Gamifying Refactoring

It was the last day of our project and I wanted to connect with my team for the last time (at least in the project), not to say goodbye but to have some fun. I couldn’t think of any idea better than “Gamifying Refactoring” and that is how the idea came to life.

Refactoring is fun to learn and practice. It is even more fun if you get to learn it together by playing a game. All you got to do is - identify code smells, justify each of them by going beyond ilities, finish all of this in a fixed time and get points for your team. Learn and have fun. This is the idea behind “Gamifying Refactoring”.

Let’s understand the game, its structure, its rules and have some fun.
