Modernizing Legacy Software Assets
You've gone through and done your app compat work, and finished your migration to Windows 7 or Windows 8. But is your job really done? Can that VB6 app from 1999 really provide the user experience that users expect today? How do you complete the experience? While there is plenty of existing materials on how to create a brand new application, what do you do if you already have thousands of applications and can't afford to throw away that code? Join Chris Jackson ("The App Compat Guy") for a discussion of how to move legacy code forward. Not one at a time, with a full replacement, but with as much code re-use as possible to really focus on building new experiences quickly.
