An Optimistic Proposal for Making Horrible Code Bearable, V2

by Joseph Mastey

Published June 1, 2017 in Programming

How do we cope with really bad code?

How can we give our teams the confidence to work with legacy code that we don’t fully understand?

How can we stop the bleeding when we don’t have time to stop shipping?

The attempted rewrite is over, the dust has settled, and the monolith isn’t going away. After all, it’s still the app that makes all the money. On the other hand, nobody wants to work on it, every new feature takes forever, and your entire team is afraid of making any change for fear of the whole thing collapsing in on itself.

Join us for an exclusive event featuring Joe Mastey. During this event, we’ll walk through some of the technical and social problems that arise from difficult codebases. We’ll learn to stop making things worse, to measure what we need to change, and start making progress.
