Using TDD and Refactoring Practices on Existing Code?
Many times the Key XP practices are discussed in the context of Greenfield Projects where code does not yet exist. That is interesting but since I tend to be extending existing systems not that useful to me. This presentation will discuss the unique challenges using these practices within existing application code in place. It will review specific tools and techniques that will accelerate your ability to use these practices against your existing systems.
