You've started a new job. As you dig deeper into the codebase, the WTFs per minute rate rapidly increases, and you're left wondering... "Where do I start?!". In this talk, I'll draw on my own experiences of joining several different teams to help maintain their legacy codebase. You'll come out of this talk with a better understanding of when you should or should not refactor existing code, the importance of communication, documentation, testing, and ideas for automated tests and checks.

A collection of good advice, a right closing for the first day of the conference.
Legacy project doesn't mean bad!
Got some good advices on how to improve the code and how to minimize the risks.
A good talk that takes shame away from "legacy"
Good talk on 'existing code'
Really some good points based on experience.
Hilarious opening! :-D
Really liked this "refreshed" view on legacy code and its worth.
WTF rate :D
Loved the way it was presented, very entertaining. The content, while being very spot on, was not entirely new to me. I would have liked to see some real case study to give more context to the great advices that were given.
