Description: Throughout the history of software (and humans in general), the old and crufty has been replaced by the new and hot, in a never-ending chain of “It’d be so much better if I just…”. Sometimes the path from old to new is smooth, but more often than not, it passes over a few bumps in the road.

This talk explores the common bumps and bruises and some lessons to be learned from Apache, Python, and other major system refactors.
