Strategic Code Deletion - Agile Singapore Conference 2016

Published on: Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Speaker: Michael Feathers (@mfeathers), Director @ R7K Research & Conveyance

In most systems, code lives forever. Occasionally, we can delete it if we are sure it is not used; however, static path analysis and production monitoring of code usage are often expensive and present inconclusive results. In this talk, Michael Feathers will describe techniques that allow us to generate more certainty around our assessments of feature liveness, and strategies that can be used to remove code that does not have high value.
