There’s nothing more frustrating than not being able to deliver new features because of unnecessarily complicated code. You may decide it’s time to throw it all away and start over… and what starts off full of optimism, drags on for months and months, adding even more complexity and various levels of legacy.

It doesn’t have to be this way! In this presentation, you’ll hear a first-hand experience of how to approach technical debt at its worst, and how a rewrite project was successful in more ways than expected.

This talk will teach you lessons on how to start, and most importantly, finish a big rewrite project.
