Join Walt Ritscher for an in-depth discussion in this video Refactoring your code, part of Visual Studio 2010 Essential Training.
Writing code is a constant push and pull on your development skills.…First, you write some code and test it to see if it works the way you intended.…Then as the project progresses, you think about ways to improve and change the code.…Some people call this rewriting refactoring.…Regardless of how you define it, Visual Studio has refactoring tools to help.…If you are a C# developer, then you don't have to do anything special, as there…are about 10 refactoring tools built into Visual Studio.…If you are a Visual Basic programmer, you should download the free CodeRush…Xpress tool, which provides dramatic code refactoring support.…
I'm inside Visual Studio, and I've opened the RefactorYourCode Solution, which…contains a C# and a Visual Basic project.…I will start my refactoring journey by going to Program.cs.…A common refactoring is when you need to rename something.…I am going to rename this variable. So I will put my cursor on the variable, and…I will right-click and choose Refactor.…Then I will choose Rename.…

Q: Which edition of Visual Studio 2010 do I need to follow along in this course?
A: The course is taught with Visual Studio 2010 Professional, but can also be used with the Premium or Ultimate editions. The Express editions of Visual Studio, including Visual Basic 2010 Express, Visual C# 2010 Express, and Visual C++ Express, are not covered in this course.
Q: I'm attempting to download the exercise files for this course, and my virus protection is blocking me from unzipping the downloaded file. Are the files corrupted?
A: The alert is a false-positive message. Your antivirus software is detecting the active code included in the exercise files, which in some ways resembles viral code. There is nothing to be alarmed about and you can ignore the warning. This is common among coding courses and environments.
