Event Breakdown
Jeff Foster Finding the Joy in Legacy Code
Jeff is Head of Software Engineering for Red Gate Software.

Legacy code is often much maligned. No-one wants to work on an “old” code base that’s hard to change, much better to work on a new product, right? I’d like to try and convince you that legacy code can be fun. Underneath that mucky surface, there’s a rich history to explore, techniques to hone and knowledge to be excavated.
Robert C Martin Architecture The Lost Years
Does the architecture of your application tell you the intent of the application, or does it just tell you what frameworks you’ve used. A good architecture screams about the intent of the application and hides the frameworks. In this talk, Uncle Bob talks about the lost years of architecture, about how the web is just a detail, and about the best kind of architecture to use for your applications.
