Confronting Complexity

A session at Software Architect 2013

Thursday 10th October, 2013

4:00pm to 5:30pm (GMT)

Legacy software systems acquire an organic quality and as such they are amenable to analysis with the tools of the observational sciences measurement and statistics. We accumulate a wealth of data during development, which we can usefully mine from source control systems. Analysis of this data can direct preventative or remedial refactoring efforts to maximise their impact. I’ll share experiences of extracting and analysing useful data from a large, high-value, legacy system undergoing active development, charting its history and renewal.
