Programming code is either going to be rewritten at some point, or die. Legacy code is code that you’ve either inherited or made and its doing something important and you want it to keep working. It may have been touched by more than 2-3 developers. You want to keep the code from breaking.

Llewelyn says, “In theory, you could have legacy code out there that’s beautiful, really! I’m interested in keeping code working and attainable even if its old. Code excellence is about discipline and it’s attainable with simple techniques.”
