TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
Every ColdFusion developer is a builder and an artist. We want to create and craft beautiful, elegant solutions with CFML that are powerful and dynamic… but sometimes, we still need to deal with the legacy code that was built a decade ago by a developer who has long since left the organization and didn’t know what they were doing to begin with. Or, maybe the company direction has shifted (again) and what was a priority in the past is no longer relevant. Maybe the approach you originally took to a problem can be done cleaner, and more efficiently. Maybe there’s new functionality in ColdFusion that renders old approaches obsolete. At some point, modernization of your approach becomes necessary to retain your sanity!
In this group therapy session, I will discuss legacy code, why it’s difficult to manage, how to take incremental approaches to improving it and some techniques on how to modernize your development approach.
ABOUT THE SPEAKER(s): (provided by the speaker)
David Byers was previously promotions director for a rock radio station, but chose to change careers in the 1990's when he simultaneously got tired of eating Top Ramen, and fell in love with developing websites and web based applications. For over 22 years, he has focused his expertise on the ColdFusion platform, developing software for a multitude of businesses ranging from small mom-and-pop shops to enterprises of over 900 employees. A former ColdFusion User Group manager, he has been a proponent of CFML, and regularly provides content to the ColdFusion Community Portal. Born in Canada, David lives in Las Vegas, Nevada with his wife, three cats, four house bunnies, and two bearded dragons.
