Legacy applications are full of supervillains scheming to halt modernizing efforts. But deprecated versions of PHP, frameworks, libraries, and more drive a never-ending battle to keep applications up to date, supported, and secure. This can leave any would-be superhero seeking how, what, when, and why.

Join me as we consider real-life case studies of modernizations from various large legacy applications, and will share common evil-doers, ways to foil their plans, and how to eliminate vulnerabilities in the first place. See how to make refactoring your super power!

I thought it was going to be a more nuts and bolts kind of talk. I expected to see code examples too. The talk showed a completely different thing than I was expecting but did it so very well. I've seen Adam on other talks and he always delivers.

Interesting though not what I was expecting. I was thinking it would be more about how to refactor versus the theory and discussion on how to argue for (or against) doing it and how to justify it with business logic. While the case studies were fascinating to a degree, the theories weren't really applicable to our shop, as we don't have issues with arguing for the need to refactor, more on how to do so.
