I just remembered some old projects:
- internationalization. Find all strings in the solution and create resources for them
- database cleanup. Find all string concatenated SQL queries and replace with parameterized queries.
Guess how much fun I had with dead code in the form of "backup projects" in the solution, backup files in projects, no more needed files in projects (build action=none), functions which are never called, ...?
The guy is right: delete code!
Oh sanctissimi Wilhelmus, Theodorus, et Fredericus!
