re: Refactoring old code vs Rewriting everything for long-term? VIEW POST


As with most things in the tech business, time is money and/or risk and a full rewrite means a lot of both, possibly more than your organization may tolerate. Rather than an either or, I would re-approach your binary proposal, coming up w/ multiple options or a phased approach with time AND honest risk assessments. That will give your management a way to plan for it over time rather than having to swallow it whole - the either or is a bit like blackmail, which will not win you any friends whether you are right or not.


Definitely something that's worth being considered.
Thank you for sharing wisdom!
