So, you inherited a large code base...

by David Sankel

(watch on YouTube) (watch on Channel 9)

Summary of the talk:

This is a talk about solving the most difficult problem a software engineer ever faces, converting a large codebase with antiquated designs and spotty quality into a state-of-the-art, modern system. We'll be covering clang-based refactoring, mnemonic reasoning methods, safe rewrites, coding standards, and, oh yes, migration paths.

If you've ever been tasked with making a legacy codebase the best-in-class, or think you might, then this talk is for you.
