Legacy Refactoring Strategies

(This is a hands-on lab with limited capacity)

There is an almost inevitable slide into complexity that happens to projects. As legacy code is more ubiquitous than green fields development, this is an area that deserves more of our attention.

Legacy systems represent huge value to the business, and the ideal situation is to be able to turn around a system that has degenerated into the Big Ball of Mud.

We have techniques for handling legacy projects that have been proven in many consulting projects over many years. These techniques include DDD, as well as a way of looking for key leverage points and the blockers that are slowing everyone down.

This workshop will present the 3 tier strategy we have employed to rescue many legacy projects, and will give attendees an opportunity to talk about their own legacy issues. We will encourage the sharing of ideas in groups, as well as bring our +60 years of experience to bear by participating in the groups and seeding ideas that they can consider.

The outcome of the workshop is to present our 3 tier strategy for dealing with legacy projects and give attendees the confidence to try the techniques with their own legacy projects.
