Refactoring Legacy Applications with Laravel

45 minute intermediate seminar


All programmers face the challenge of working on a codebase they would've done differently. "I wish I could just start from scratch" you hear them mutter. But is that really the best solution? Is throwing away years of development a good move?

In this talk we will look at the different methods available to upgrade the current spaghetti mess into a well structured Object Orientated dream. Learn how to go about bootstrapping Laravel into your existing codebase, allowing you to slowly upgrade and refactor to a well structured, Composer based MVC system, without any downtime.
