Programming and importance of refactoring - how to convience the others?
Hi to everybody! A'm a programmer (.net) and right now I do a great refacoting in my project. It means that I rearrange my code in the way which it should be more readable and understandable for other team members. But the subject of the discussion is following: how can you manage to convince your team or your boss to let you start the refactoring process? Because refactoring doesn't produce new features. But it hurts every time when you have to deal with some parts of code that were written previously and don't fit to current situation. What are your stories?
