Mikado Method

Mikado Method

Abstract: A code base must be changed, or it will die. But sometimes these changes feels like a fight with the Legacy Software Hydra, for every scary head cut off, two more grows out. Every change takes us further from the goal!

This talk presents the Mikado Method, a systematic approach to beat the Hydra and change the code in a safe way. It enables continuous delivery, collaboration, learning and helps individuals stay on track. You will see how code changes are visualized, prepared and performed all while keeping the focus on business-value. Without having a broken code-base during the process.
