Kotlin Everywhere Hamburg: Refactoring Legacy Code with Kotlin and Coroutines

Kotlin Everywhere Hamburg: Refactoring Legacy Code with Kotlin and Coroutines

Legacy code can be quite the challenge to manage, often resulting from untested scenarios, quick fixes, or less than successful initiatives. With few developers wanting to deal with it, it can end up with little remaining knowledge of it's inner workings.

We can take many learnings from Michael Feathers book on "Working Effectively with Legacy Code", but we can also use Kotlin migration as an effective tool to leverage the management, reduction, and removal of legacy code in our applications.

In this session, you'll learn how to get started with Kotlin in your projects, tips and tricks on how to preserve your version control history, some pitfalls when migrating from Java, and what new technologies you can make use of in your journey with Kotlin.
