Title: The Road to Improving Testability

Abstract: In an ideal world, starting from a greenfield project and with continued, disciplined application of best practises and TDD, we would have an easily testable system with robust, reliable tests. But in reality we work under many constraints and we all have to work with the dreaded “legacy code”. In this talk I will look at several strategies for managing technical debt and improving testability.
