re: Don't let that huge codebase scare you! Tips and tools to make sense of other people's code VIEW POST


Great read! 😀

One of the things I find myself doing, depending on the codebase is to look for the tests OR write some tests around the code.

I like tests that express some of the business requirements and show any thought patterns and logic that have formed the rules around what the code should and should not be doing.

Sometimes it's nicer if there are no tests at all so I can experiment more and see the boundaries myself.

Either way tests are so valuable!!
