We've all been faced with legacy code and often decided to rewrite, feeling it would be easier. There are many reasons this can be wrong. Adam Culp will talks about the entire journey of refactoring a legacy code base. He will begin with assessment and why, move on to planning how and when, cover execution and testing, give step-by-step examples, and even show how to manage the process effectively. Attendees will gain insight and tips on how to handle their own pile of code and refactor happy.
