Maintaining legacy apps has been the bane of my existence these past several years. Even applications that are supposed to be greenfield quickly turn into legacy apps. I'm looking forward to some good discussions this week.
Welcome Chris, I have been on three greenfield software projects so far and all of them had degraded their initial design at some point either due to developers/architects leaving or because the design/code couldn't evolve because of other pressures from project management. But later on we come to the point where it becomes unmaintainable. That's the point when management is ready to listen. If we said that we could refactor and bring it to safety, that would be a relief for them. If we were not able to refactor, then either the project fails or if it survives, it is painful for the developers like long work hours for forever. I have seen that in two of my three projects so far. lucky enough to have escaped the first one. So refactoring is a serious need for developers like me.
