Untangling Legacy Code

40 minute intermediate seminar

Description/Proposal

At some point, code just gets old.

We’ve all been brought in to a project where the code is more tangled than a bowl of spaghetti. Things are so interwoven that you’re afraid to make any changes in case they break something else.

Not all is lost.

In this talk, we’ll look at:
• How an IDE (integrated development environment) can help you untangle old code
• How to use version control to ensure you don’t break anything
• And how to refactor legacy code to make your job easier in the future
