JoC #22: Refactoring for good style

      We are accustomed to see men deride what they do not understand, and snarl
      at the good and beautiful because it lies beyond their sympathies.
            — Goethe

Okay, time to get a little more professional again: Let’s clean up our code a little.

Writing in good style is really important, so today I’ll show you a bit about refactoring. Especially, we want to create short, clear methods. (The technical term for it is cohesion – we want highly cohesive methods.)

JoC #8: Keeping your code clean

      Always code as if the guy who ends up maintaining your code will
      be a violent psychopath who knows where you live.
          — John F. Woods
