Refactoring Everything, Day 23

by chromatic

This 30-day project explores the refactoring of a legacy system. The Everything Engine is an aging software project that powers Perl Monks, Everything 2, and a few other websites. It suffers from poor design and maintainiability. Learn what it's like to look over the shoulder of an experienced developer as he refactors, redesigns, and updates the code.

Today's task is to figure out what to do next -- and to plan for reshuffling the database code.
