What is Legacy Code & how do we deal with it?

What is Legacy Code? Why most, if not all projects end up being legacy? Which are the best practices for dealing with it? These are some of the most persisten questions in the world of programming and software development, and to answer them is precisely our mission when we created the new course about Legacy Code that will begin next November 19th.

Legacy Code course

Álvaro García, Principal Engineer at Apiumhub has created this course so that all attendees learn how to work with legacy code. You’ll get to understand which code should be modified, maintained, or rewritten, plus you’ll also learn: what’s legacy code, how to produce it (and which factors generate it). You’ll see tools to deal with legacy code, understanding which one applies. Heuristics on saving, rewriting, throwing away components. After that, you’ll practice some TDD, to keep your software maintainable.

After finishing the course, the students will receive a Completion Certificate.

The course will be entirely in Spanish.
