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.
