Living with Legacy

It is a fact of life for every developer: you have to deal with code that has been written before your time, that does not follow state-of-the-art best practices, and that — worst of all — is not tested so you cannot safely change or extend it. In this session, the audience will witness the step-by-step refactoring of fictitious legacy code towards a state that is easy to comprehend, extend, test, and maintain.
