Working Effectively with Legacy Rails Code - Scotland on Rails 2009

Rails has powered Oakley.com, a site generating tens of millions of dollars in revenue for the past two years. It has 80 models, an equal number of controllers, 75k lines of code…and no tests. I will talk about how we’ve been chipping away at growing an effective, valuable test suite since I’ve come on with Oakley. How can we take a mass of untested code that runs our businesses, and start working to the ideal of high-quality, malleable, tested code, while still meeting the demands of high productivity in our daily work? My talk will get people thinking and talking about that process, and give them practical techniques for making it reality.
