How I finally achieved a meaningful new years resolution

One of my 2019 resolutions was to read at least one book per month. Now I can proudly say I read 22 books from start to finish in 2019. Before this I think I was reading maybe 1-3 books a year. (I’ll admit this post is a bit of a pat on the back for myself :))

Git the most edited files in a project

This post was inspired from seeing multiple bugs coming from the same file in a project in a short period of time. I could easily see all types of code smells in this particular file. So I had a hypothesis, if I could find the most edited files in the repo I would likely find the files with the most technical debt i.e. most code smells. So I created a very simple powershell script to test my hypothesis.
