Very basic talk, yet managed to throw in some nice tips about managing management!

I like the structure of the talk as well as the link back to your personal life (continuous improvement), that made a lot of sense ;) Content-wise it was a good talk, very well structured and easy to follow.

Very well put together talk. For me it was just the right combination of content and inspiration to go and look at this outside of the event. Adam gave us enough information to get us hooked and start thinking how to refactor our legacy code.

As my current CTO put it: "Today we write the legacy code of tomorrow." So it always comes in handy to have some ideas on how to tackle refactoring, and the talk was not shy in giving a bunch of them. Even if it was based on refactoring really old PHP applications, some of the advice from the talk is usable when you refactor a more recent application.

Not sure I agree with the advice regarding getting rid of new, though - take it with a grain of salt. Other than that, recommended listening, as it was presented very well.

Very good overview of refactoring steps.
I also liked the answer to the question of refactoring or creating a new application

Worth hearing to get a general overview how to refactor legacy code to more maintainability. Few insights for developers already deep in refactoring business, but not unexpected.

Really enjoyed the talk. Whilst I do a lot of refactoring on a regular basis, but don't often work with the kind of legacy code which Adam covered, I still took something away from the talk. I also enjoyed listening to such a well structured and well laid out talk presented by a professional speaker.
