"Refactoring: Temp to Query and Intention Revealing Selector"
Recently I gave a live coding session to my colleagues on refactoring. I took two very well known techniques and applied them to a pull request that included a ~30 line method.

Refactoring is the third step in the red green cycle and is something that we as developers talk about all the time. I want to introduce two very simple refactorings that will greatly enhance the readability of your code not only to yourself but your future self as well.

• why Sinatra instead of Y framework
• building and validating features
