The Limited Red Society
Recorded at:

by Joshua Kerievsky on Jun 03, 2010 |

Joshua Kerievsky discusses the need to reduce “red” periods of time while developing software. One is in the red when he spends too much time designing, or having compilation errors or the tests do not pass. Kerievsky demonstrates a method (Parallel Change) of reducing the red while refactoring code, and discusses another approach called Narrowed Change, and answers refactoring related questions.


Joshua Kerievsky has been programming professionally since 1987, and is the founder of Industrial Logic (, a company specializing in Extreme Programming (XP). Joshua has been an active member of the XP and patterns communities, he wrote a book called Refactoring To Patterns and he created Industrial Extreme Programming.
