Robert Annett explores some of the issues of upgrading, maintaining or replacing legacy Java and .NET applications that haven't been touched in a decade, providing advice on solving common problems.
Robert Annett has been a developer since 1995 and worked in industries from energy management to investment banking. Much of this work has involved upgrading and migrating legacy systems with the occasional green-field project (with integration to legacy systems, of course). He has worked in the IT industry long enough to realize that ALL successful systems become legacy eventually. @robert_annett
