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 upgrade their legacy codebase.
I’ll show you what approaches were tried, what worked, what didn’t work, and how things could’ve been done differently
You’ll come out of this talk with some ideas of how to tackle your own codebase and make it easier to refactor.
