Last updated: 4 months ago

Two teams solving the same problem in two different ways. This talk will follow the Android and iOS teams at Softdroom fighting with legacy code, each in their own way. The Android team chose to refactor their old app, while the iOS team decided to create a brand new application. In this talk, we will consider the benefits and drawbacks of both approaches. We will also go through the pitfalls that you may encounter on these paths to a modern codebase. By the end of this talk, you will have all the necessary knowledge to pick the best path for you when fighting with the technical debt.
