About the Book

Instead of focusing on solutions to code issues (e.g. most books/course on design patterns), this book will teach you some of the main causes of unhealthy code, how to identify them, targeted techniques to improve your code and how to use design patterns appropriately - after you understand the problem at hand.

Let's bring your code back to life again!


  1. Introduction
  2. Null Checks Everywhere!
  3. Verbose Conditionals
  4. Nested Conditionals
  5. Primitive Overuse
  6. Long Method Signature
  7. Long Methods
  8. Unwieldy Loops
  9. Dumping Grounds
  10. Complex Object Creation

Each section represents some indicator of unhealthy code. Within each of these, you'll learn how to identify it and fix it with multiple techniques.
