  • Is your code easy to change? 
  • Can you get nearly instantaneous feedback when you do change it?  
  • Do you understand it? 

If the answer to any of these questions is NO, you have legacy code, and it is draining time and money away from your development efforts.


"Working Effectively with Legacy Code 1st Edition" book by Michael Feathers offers start-to-finish strategies for working more effectively with large, untested legacy code bases. 

The topics covered in "Working Effectively with Legacy Code" include:

  • Understanding the mechanics of software change: 
    • Adding features, 
    • Fixing bugs, 
    • Improving design, 
    • Optimizing performance.
  • Getting legacy code into a test harness.
  • Writing tests that protect you against introducing new problems.
  • Techniques that can be used with any language or platform—with examples in Java, C++, C, and C#.
  • Accurately identifying where code changes need to be made.
  • Coping with legacy systems that aren't object-oriented.
  • Handling applications that don't seem to have any structure.

Who Is This Book For?

  • Software developers, 
  • Team-leaders,
  • Business analysts, and 
  • Managers.
  • Who want to improve and increase their coding and testing skills.
