How can you help your technical teams to work effectively and productively in legacy codebases? In a legacy codebase, minor changes can break a fragile ecosystem, leading to system-wide issues down the line. Without the tools and techniques to confidently work in this environment, the productivity of your development teams can grind to a halt.

Join our Senior Engineer, Scott Edwards, as he explores techniques to both minimize the risks inherent to legacy codebases, and to increase your technical teams’ productivity levels in their day-to-day deliveries.

Topics we will cover include:

  • Defining what we mean by “legacy codebases”.
  • The benefits and costs of focusing on modernisation efforts.
  • A strategy to help development teams to approach legacy codebases.
  • Recommended resources for further research and learning.
