Renovate existing systems

Rewrites have a bad reputation for good reason. Expensive, time consuming rewrites almost never work well—you don’t need those headaches or the risk that comes with it.

Unwind your legacy systems instead, and unlock potential to take advantage of market opportunities.

That said, we get it. Sometimes there are unavoidable reasons to choose a rewrite. We’ve worked on rewrites to enable business critical, system-wide innovation. But, if you’re considering a rewrite of your legacy codebase, it’s crucial to carefully weigh the costs, risks, and benefits before investing. We can do a free office hours session to help you evaluate your decision.

Get to more maintainable software

Everyone wants their codebase to be easier to maintain. Getting there is another story. Legacy system modernization and refactoring is not the most glamorous work. But we honestly enjoy that kind of challenge.

We’ll remove blockers, safely factor your codebase, and share knowledge. You and your team get a legacy system that’s easier to maintain now and in the future.

No judgment zone—we’ve seen a lot!

Automated testing approaches

We have a lot of thoughts about testing, but we’re not dogmatic about it. Your situation is as unique as your team and your codebase. We’ll help your team focus on solid practices for building automated end-to-end tests as part of their daily activities.

We’ll meet you where you are, then make recommendations on how to make automated testing work best for your team. So your test suite is able to evolve at the same pace as your codebase.
