Rewriting 15-Year-Old Code, by Anna Filina
Did you ever have to maintain a 15-year-old application? Dead code and tables everywhere, static methods, database queries in between HTML tags and some pages still in a language that is no longer supported.
This presentation will lead you through a progressive rewrite from very old legacy to the latest shiny versions. Learn how to automate legacy testing, how to seamlessly jump between the old and new parts, and how to overcome other challenges that arise from dealing with legacy.
