This morning on #c9d9 we discussed Continuous Delivery for legacy applications. Assuming your business did not start yesterday - you probably have some of those lying around: those applications that might be poorly understood, or poorly tested, that can be cumbersome or brittle, that may be difficult to update -- but that somehow - still - just work. This is the legacy code that keeps the lights on, but that you’re afraid to touch…


How do you deal with all your pre-DevOps applications? Should you embark on a journey to ‘DevOps’ify your legacy applications? If so, how can you bring legacy code and technical debt into the fold – as part of your CD pipelines? On the show, we discussed:

  • How do you define Legacy?
  • Should you poke that bear?
  • What are some of the challenges doing CI and CD for legacy apps?
  • What are some of the best practices to bring DevOps practices to legacy applications- where should you start, and how to go about it?
