Are you using code refactoring? What has your experience been?
We do use code refactoring on a fairly large scale. So far, my experience has been positive. We’ve been able to solve some problems that arose over time as our implementation evolved to encompass new technologies and business needs. It is a difficult process for anything in the non-trivial domain, but I believe that is the nature of writing software.
Fun little quiz. 
Thanks, Veretax! Glad you enjoyed it.
5/7 - I actually thought these were pretty simple questions, but apparently I could stand to brush up on my refactoring knowledge!
