“I was told to refactor my code,
but I didn’t know how.”

If you've ever been tasked with refactoring code but felt unsure about how to approach it, you're not alone. Many developers struggle to understand when to refactor, how to do it effectively, and what aspects of the code to focus on.

After extensive research, I discovered that developers had spent years refining step-by-step refactoring methods, which allow you to improve code quality without altering its functionality. However, most of these techniques were initially designed for languages like C and Java, which lack the flexibility and expressiveness of Python.

Driven by a passion for bridging this gap, I dedicated myself to translating and adapting these traditional refactoring practices into the Python context. The result is the Python Refactoring Toolkit, a comprehensive resource that brings the power of refactoring to the Python ecosystem, providing Python-specific methods and an easy-to-use technique that will boost your productivity.

I want to help expedite that process for you.

This toolkit translates the “traditional” refactoring practices into modern python, adds a few python-specific methods, and gives you a get-out-of-jail-free technique that is easy to remember and can help you if you don’t have the refactoring techniques handy.

Hi, I'm the author behind the Python Refactoring Toolkit.

I’ve been programming in python for more than 15 years and co-founded the python user group in Richmond, Virginia (PyRVA) in 2015.

With over 15 years of experience in Python programming and co-founding the Python user group in Richmond, Virginia (PyRVA) in 2015, I've witnessed firsthand the transformative effect of mastering new skills and achieving programming prowess.

I want you to experience that same sense of empowerment and confidence, knowing that you can create high-quality code to tackle any project.
