Refactoring, Ruby, and Insects

, Mar 3, 2006

A great article about the (lack of a need for) refactoring. (Thanks, Jerry.)

I’ll also admit to one thing: As regular readers know, I’m a fan of model-driven engineering, MDA, MDSD, and related technologies. Even so, I’ll be the first to admit that a major part of the use-cases for MDSD/MDA apply to problems that simply don’t exist when you use a more powerful programming language.
