"We all know those certain places in our codebase that no one dares touch, either because "it just works and you might break it" or "it's John Doe's module".
In this session I will help you admit to yourself that you may also be a victim of this toxic situation and will showcase some techniques that helped me overcome it in projects I worked on."
