Programming Without Fear: Best Practices for New and Existing Software Saturday, November 13, 2010 - 8:00am Gil Broza

The Legacy Code Trap

Writing new code is one of the joys of programming. Modifying existing code is often one of the nightmares of programming. Unfortunately, you will spend more time modifying existing code than writing new code.

Modifying existing code often results in Whac-A-Mole Programming - you make a change in one part of the code, and a problem crops up in another place. You fix that problem and two more pop up. You quickly find yourself trapped in debug hell!
