Develop your Sense of Code Smell

It has been 18 years since Martin Fowler published “Refactoring” which codified an initial catalog of code smells. But in that time, have our noses been able to sniff them out? What have we done to develop our sense of smell? We will do a series of Sparrow Decks to increase our sense of code smell by building the pattern recognition part of our brain. This way we can more easily know if there is something wrong with the code. Remember smelling you have a problem is always the first step. (Note: this technique works for non-programmers as well as programmers so even if you’re not a programmer, come and develop your sense of code smell!)
