Our cycle of workshops for 2017 has started with a code quality initiative. The first session on this topic was the "Smelling Code Workshop", held on the last Friday of January at the Solenix's offices.
Code smells are structures within the code that violate fundamental design principles in software engineering and can have a very negative impact not only in the quality of the resulting software, but also in its maintainability and readibility. Solenix employees were challenged to identifiy code smells coming from real-life code snippets and were asked to find practices to improve the code and resolve the issues. The workshop developed into a very lively discussion over possible solutions and best practices, becoming a very valuable forum to exchange relevant experiences amongst all participants.
