Dealing with legacy applications [0.5d]

Talk to your mentor about how we're approaching applications that are either old or adapted from a different team:

  • Add integration tests for the happy path
  • Always add tests on whatever we work on
  • When you work on something, improve that part of the code.
  • Make sure setup for a new developer is as frictionless as possible (ideally it's bundle && rake db:create db:migrate)
  • Make sure deployment is as frictionless as possible
  • Setup failure notifications

Also have a look at our homepage.
