Happy July, everybody! Hope you're surviving this heat. Have you ever had to migrate a legacy application? Do you think you might need to in the future? Then this month's talk is for you. We'll be meeting this month (Thursday, 7/26) back at Capital Factory to hear from Chris Chang of Conde Nast. Chris provided this blurb for the talk:

"What happens when you have ancient Spring Boot project that’s untouchable, vital to your business, and suddenly needs attention? You rewrite it in Django! Now what if there’s no docs, no README, and the codebase is just thousands of XML files and interfaces? Well I’ll tell you how I did it."

Migrating legacy codebases is a common task, and I'm looking forward to hearing Chris's take on things. I'd also love to hear your experiences with these kinds of projects!
