PHPImpact Blog:
Code Refactoring Guidelines
September 16, 2008 @ 12:16:00

Federico has posted a list of suggestions on things to look out for and to consider when you're refactoring your code.

Refactoring neither fixes bugs nor adds new functionality, though it might precede either activity. Rather it improves the understandability of the code and changes its internal structure and design, and removes dead code, to make it easier to comprehend, more maintainable and amenable to change. Refactoring is usually motivated by the difficulty of adding new functionality to a program or fixing a bug in it.

He's broken it out into a few topics with the suggestions underneath - things like looking at the "Big Picture", avoiding "Extreme Abstraction" and ensuring that your "Error Handling" is up to where it should be.
