About This Episode

Published on May 6th, 2016

You'll frequently find yourself in the position of needing to normalize a particular value. Sure, the value might be in the proper format from the start; but it could also be in the form of a function that you need to trigger. Or maybe, based upon various business rules, you need to first modify the value before continuing on. Well, if you're not careful, your code can get pretty messy, pretty fast.

One option you might consider is extracting all of the normalizing-specific code into either its own method, or a different class entirely. In this episode, we'll cycle through a number of refactors that you might consider.
