Abstract: You can run, you can switch jobs, and you can write unit tests, but invariably at some point you will run into legacy code. Legacy code hides in many forms - sealed classes, spaghetti and big-ball-of-mud code, data in disparate data sources (or incompatible schemas). As an architect, there are steps you can take to get ahead of these issues and begin to make your codebases something you actually want to change.

In this talk, we will discuss concepts from Michael Feathers' work on Working Effectively with Legacy Code as well as Scott Ambler's work on refactoring databases. You'll see tips and tricks to model your legacy code and data, and hear about ways to begin to turn your legacy code into a usable base."
