A legacy application. It still earns the money, but maintaining the old code base is getting harder and harder. Feature development is too slow and the bug tracker is full of severe defect reports. Rewriting the whole application is something your developers would simply love to do. But the rewrite probably won't go live before it's running out of budget. Let's have a look at simple techniques that allow us to transform our legacy application step by step into a modern Symfony application.

From the two ways possible, showed one (the one better fitting for a Freelancer). Good job. Well done.

Very good presentation. Nice tricks about maintaining legacy.

Great talk with some nice code-examples and ideas how to solve refactoring issues with legacy apps.

Really nice tallk !

Had good points how to improve legacy application. Could improve in talking (too monotonous) & maybe could add argumentation why it is not worth rewriting such type of legacy system.
