Modernising the Legacy
Comments are closed.
Half way through and still no mention about how to deal with legacy code. Just common practises for coding in general. Would be a good general beginners tutorial, but this talk was sadly not advertised as such.
Last 15 minutes did pick up some, with some examples for black boxing the legacy, but judging by the title of the talk this is where it all should have started.
Not bad. Made me feel better about not going back and trying to write unit tests for all existing code.
This was a very enlightening. The interaction with legacy solutions is very concerning. Marek's presentation takes some of the fear out of disrupting the processing of the code by managing dependency injection logically and effectively and rethinking the testing and validation model.
Marek, you are a soft spoken guy, but please get a little excited about your subject. I got some things out of your talk, in particular, going forward i will set up a framework to use PHPUnit for my legacy stuff and start getting some coverage. That's an exciting thing. Let your voice reflect that.
Talk was helpful for showing how to use testing and modern dependency injection style architechture using symfony components in conjunction with legacy code.
