Modernizing Legacy Without Fear

Sebastian Bergmann | The Online PHP Conference |

It is a fact of life for every developer: you have to deal with code that has been written before your time and does not follow state-of-the-art best practices. Attendees of this (slideless!) presentation will learn how code that is perceived to be untestable can be modernized without fear thanks to small, incremental changes that are safeguarded by characterization tests. This is an interactive live coding session in mob-programming style with the presenter's screen shared. You will not write code on your own computer.
