Taking over development of an existing application is rarely an easy task. Good coding and management practices are often lacking, so maintenance and improvement of the app can be tough. This book will help you maintain and extend your brownfield applications, and find and fix its pain points.

The books starts by laying out the unique characteristics of brownfield apps—both negative and positive. It then systematically explores how you can employ well-established techniques like continuous integration, version control, and automated testing, even if they weren't part of the original dev process. You'll learn techniques to identify logical layers and tease apart dependencies to effectively separate concerns for improved flexibility. This practical book will help you improve not only your application's maintainability, but also the team's confidence in the project.


  • How to smoothly inherit an application
  • How to retrofit good processes into an existing environment
  • Reusable analysis and measurement techniques
  • How to identify—and avoid—dev pain points
  • Although it's written for .NET developers, this book shows techniques that work in any development environment.
