When I went to school for my degree a couple years ago, I can't recall ever working with a legacy codebase as part of an assignment. We had a number of assignments for creating fairly large codebases from scratch as a team but never working with one that had already been created.
For reference, I went to school at the University of Arkansas, Fort Smith and majored in Information Technology - Programming, class of 2015.
We're a place where coders share, stay up-to-date and grow their careers.
We strive for transparency and don't collect excess data.
