Refactoring Legacy Code

10th April 2014 in London at Skills Matter

There are 1 other SkillsCast available from Front Endgineers: "Sizzling with Bacon.js"

Is Legacy JavaScript the bane of your existence? It's not something you aim for but changes over time can leave the codebase in a less than ideal situation. Sugendran works in a repository that usually sees 30+ commits to master per day, with over 100 engineers having their fingers in it over the last 5 years. Recently he refactored a portion of it. This talk is about his recent experience refactoring the FeedList, one of the central features of Yammer that has been around for over four years. The ups, the downs, and the face palms.
