Limited Capacity seats available

We all have them: homegrown, purpose-built web applications from a previous era. They are several (major) versions behind on their framework, have an outdated look and feel, and lack brand standards, among other problems. But they never seem to make it to the top of the to-do list until they stop working, the person who built them leaves, or the security scanner finds a laundry list of vulnerabilities. We’ll discuss modernizing legacy web apps, including: decoupling data access, upgrading the UI/UX, where common resources/libraries can be helpful, why rewriting from scratch is so common in higher ed, and takeaways for building new apps that can withstand the test of time.
