Safely refactoring legacy code | HSCC


Not yet-another-refactoring-kata. This time we will talk about something we all have to battle against every day at work: legacy code!

We will handle legacy code cautiously, and plan our steps together to fully refactor and redesign

Pair programming is highly recommended as always! (but if you really want to, you can also work on your own)

As for the Heraklion Software Craftsmanship Community

This is a community for those who want to take software development one step (at a time) further. Those who believe in not just getting the job done, but want to be proud about the kind of work they produce. It is not a community for experienced, old, senior or advanced developers. Anyone who is passionate about improving on the software development craft is very welcome!

From The Software Craftsmanship manifesto:

As aspiring Software Craftsmen we are raising the bar of professional software development by practicing it and helping others learn the craft. Through this work we have come to value:
  • Not only working software, but also well-crafted software
  • Not only responding to change, but also steadily adding value
  • Not only individuals and interactions, but also a community of professionals
  • Not only customer collaboration, but also productive partnerships

That is, in pursuit of the items on the left we have found the items on the right to be indispensable.
