The Repurposed Legacy System

Event powered by DES - Digital Enterprise Show

Software is one of the most specialized artifacts that humans create. It isn’t a hammer, it is more like a precision designed tool that works for one specific domain.

In this talk, Michael Feathers - Author of “Working Effectively with Legacy Code” and Chief Architect at Globant - will take us into the systems that have been successfully re-purposed and use in different domains. Also, he will talk on the pitfalls and the strategies used to avoid them.

Michael Feathers
Author of 'Working Effectively with Legacy Code' and Chief Architect,

“Code without tests is bad code. It doesn't matter how well written it is; it doesn't matter how pretty or object-oriented or well-encapsulated it is. With tests, we can change the behavior of our code quickly and verifiably. Without them, we really don't know if our code is getting better or worse.”
