Many of us have been faced with the daunting task of dealing with a large, legacy codebase. When maintenance costs start overshadowing financial benefits, many organizations are faced with the "rewrite or refactor" dilemma. We'll teach you how to answer this.

Developers often have a preference for "rewrite" or "refactor", but have trouble making their case with management.

This talk will cover both the business technical considerations of this approach.
