What happens when you leave a codebase alone for a year? Would you expect it to still work? What about 5 years? 10 years?
If you've experienced you know the answer: it's a whole bunch of work to replatform the code to something more modern, more supported.
It doesn't have to be like this.
What if we used continuous integration and deployment techniques to ensure an easier future for ourselves and our future teams? Let's discuss a world in which we can write systems that, to a large degree, can look after themselves when we're not looking.
In this session, we'll explore code rot, continuous deployment, and the tools (automated and otherwise) you can use to keep your code alive for a bit longer.
