Legacy Code with Andrea Goulet

Legacy code is code without automated tests. Most companies have lots of legacy code, and most developers don’t like working on legacy code. Why is that? What is it that makes legacy code so difficult to work with? And why does a large amount of legacy code slow down an organization so severely?

Andrea Goulet is the CEO of Corgibytes, a consultancy that specializes in remodeling legacy codebases. Andrea’s company developed out of an observation that there are developers who actually love working on legacy code. Since founding Corgibytes, she has become an expert on legacy code and published a recent article about Building Technical Wealth. The article presents ways that companies can confront the realities of legacy code.
