About the conference

ThoughtWorks recently began hosting events for Business and IT Leaders as well as technology practitioners to share insight and best practice across the industry. The briefings and the Exec Breakfast series are all grounded in reality - speakers are active practitioners, passionate about their work. The events focus on technology in relation to business issues, rather than being deeply technical.

    Strangler approach . That analogy is good. In either of the approach one problem is to know the "oops we didn't know about that one". There is a need to understand code and comprehend what is there. You had talked about the tranlsating bugs. Also in my experiennce there are also dead code and unused sub modules. I have tried to understand this at eswarann.wordpress.com/2010/05/21/extracting-bu.... Your comments?
