Leaving a legacy: a guide to being kind to those who come after
A talk about taking responsibility for what you leave behindDescription
There comes a time in any project when you feel you are completely ‘done’ with it. Either you’ve learned all you can, the software is in production or you are completely fed up with the project or team and ask for a transfer.
Whatever the reason for leaving, every line of code you wrote and every interaction you had will have a lasting impact on whoever needs to take over the reigns. How successful your successors will be is in no small part in your hands.
This talk is about taking responsibility for what you leave behind. You leave this session with some guidance on how to leave a legacy which isn’t despised and hated but instead is a solid foundation for future development.
