php[architect] magazine has officially announced the release of their September 2016 issue: Legacy Code of the Ancients.
We don’t always have the luxury of working on greenfield projects where we can try out the latest language features, component libraries, or programming techniques. More often, we’re asked to take care of and add features to an application that just works and supports a company or organization’s objectives—like making money to pay salaries. Unless it’s a relatively new project, you are sure to run into corners of the codebase that should be modernized. The trick is to find the time and marshal your team to do so.
Articles in this month’s edition include:
- "Illuminating Legacy Applications" (Colin DeCarlo)
- "Legacy Code Needs Love Too" (John Congdon)
- "Building for the Internet of Things in PHP" (Adam Englander)
The usual columns are there as well including the "Education Station" and "Security Corner". You can pick up your own copy of this month’s issue directly from the php[architect] site. If you just want a sample of the content, check out this month’s free article – "The Modernization of Multiple Legacy Websites".
