As the Ruby and Rails communities mature, legacy codebases, and the ability to work with legacy code has become a prevalent issue. Instead of dreading having to work with legacy code (and dreaming of "greener" pastures), I'll show how to embrace the code you have, improve it, and leave it better than you found it. To borrow from Michael Feathers, we'll focus on "working effectively with legacy code." This talk will focus solving difficult refactoring problems in a real world codebase. I will show actual code and demonstrate specific refactoring techniques to show how specific problems were solved. This is not a conceptual talk, and thus we will look at LOTS of real code. You've been warned!
