Disentangling .NET Namespaces

Posted by & filed under Architecture, Restructure101.

If architectural drift is addressed before monolithic code tangles have formed, the higher-level components can be disentangled by relatively low cost/risk relocation of classes between components. Otherwise more invasive class-level surgery is needed – this is possible with Restructure101, but this tutorial focuses on the simpler situation.

Introducing Levelized Structure Maps (LSM)

Posted by & filed under News, Restructure101, Structure, Visualization.

Levelized Structure Maps (LSM) are a new, intuitive way to visualize and manipulate software systems. Using LSM, large-scale refactoring to remove dependency tangles and other over-complexity, becomes second nature. LSM are the core of Restructure101. Items in the LSM are levelized into rows, or levels, so that every item depends on at least one item on… Read more »
