Most developers have at least one code base they avoid because they're terrified of breaking it. But then, how do they fix it? 😱

In our first ROR Meetup in over a year (!), we will be answering your burning question on how to *effectively* deal with legacy code ⚡️

We have organized three 30 minute talks to introduce a diverse range of perspectives, techniques and examples on maintaining and upgrading your dragon-like legacy code.

* Ability to experiment and add more value to customers
• How ?
* Choosing the right tool for the job
* Partial rollout and maintaining parity when needed (feature flags)
* Instrumenting all things! (metrics and tracing)
• Will this work for me ? (Parting thoughts and some advices based on what we have learned)

🙌 Pedro Moreira
"Life after 15k commits - Legacy code in a 4.5 year old project"
