In this talk, we are going to pinpoint that value. And move that value in a better to maintain and understand codebase.
First, we will cover the general mentality that will make it easier to prepare a plan of attack.
Next up are more technical tips that will make it easier to talk about the code.
We will end off the session by actually porting a small piece of code
