New Live Stream: Testing and Refactoring Legacy Code
Join the IntelliJ IDEA Live Stream on Wednesday, December 15, at 17:00 CET / 16:00 UTC; where our guest Sandro Mancuso will present “Testing and refactoring legacy code”.
Not every project is a greenfield one, and aging legacy systems can be difficult to work with. Often they are badly documented spaghetti code with poor test coverage and costly to businesses – how to deal with it? Subscribe for our next webinar to learn how!
There are many challenges in retrofitting unit tests to legacy code, including hard-wired dependencies and isolating the unit under testing without breaking the rest of the system. Knowing where to start and being able to create the tests and production code is challenging in a messy codebase. In this live coding session, Sandro will present many techniques that will help you to efficiently retrofit tests to legacy code and then refactor it to show the business logic more clearly.
We invite you to interact with our speaker and the host during the live stream – they are happy to answer your questions submitted via YouTube chat. See you on the stream! If you have any issues on the topic, leave us a comment on this blog post.
