"We can't write tests because of how the code is factored."

Teams often feel trapped in this loop, assuming that getting out would require a massive rewrite or other heroic efforts. We'll talk about a way to break this loop, no matter how messy & convoluted the code is. Then we'll apply it to some real-world code. Bring your gnarly code if you have it.

Jay Bazuzi is a developer who loves legacy code.
