Main talk #1 - Ivett Ördög
How I learned to love legacy code, and why you should too
I used to complain about legacy code, but I was wrong. Not because if something generates revenue, then it should be loved! No… that’s not an excuse for bad code. There's a more disturbing truth about legacy code, and we need to face it. It’s time to learn to love your legacy.

Full Metal Rüst
Roughly 6 years ago, in May 2014, I gave a talk at this meetup called "Full Metal Rüby", sharing my retrospective experiences in community management in Ruby and previously, the German metal online scene. I postulated two things: a) that programming communities are not exceptional and b) that the Ruby community doesn't exist, but instead multiple, with distinct cultures, but shared values.
Previously on "Full Metal..."
Not long after, I joined the Rust project and started working on a new programming language environment. I've seen and helped the Rust project growing from a loose cluster of 10 or so people to a project powerhouse with 300 members plus. And that's just the core project! After 6 years of time, I think it's time to reflect on the learnings of that time and conclusion about what worked - and what didn't.
Why so on a Ruby usersgroup? I'll let you know.
Probably a good Christmas talk. Christmas is metal af.
