Even legacy code should have test coverage.
Finding the right places to put those tests, however is really hard. How do you add support unit tests when most of your code is tightly coupled?

We'll discuss a number of strategies to find seams in your existing legacy code, which libraries make this easier and help us test more and deeper into our legacy codebases.
We also will cover valuable metrics to measure for progress, how we should approach the issue of continually improving our tests.

By the end of this talk the audience should have a better understanding of what a seam is, how to leverage them to test code, how to use mocking libraries and runtime replacement to help get better test coverage.
Most importantly we'll all walk away feeling like we can tackle refactoring and new features with confidence.
