There is a lot of frustration among developers when they need to work with the old code, usually called “legacy”. But there is way more legacy code running than non-legacy out there in the world. Developers like starting from scratch but that is not often the case. If they want to successfully replace legacy with newer code they need to start with appreciation and respect for that legacy code because it somehow runs and there is no guarantee that new code will do a better job.

Great presentation, I fully agree with the things that you have said. I also like the fact that you are very skilled public speaker

A bit "philosophical" take on the legacy, but very well delivered and engaging. Offered a new perspective to the developers and potentially business people as well on a topic that is too often neglected.
