Diary of a Rails rescue project

Rescue projects are unique challenges. Chances are, you’re working with someone else’s code. (Or maybe you’re working with your own code, but it’s been so long you don’t remember the work or it represents a former self’s skill set.) If a project hasn’t been touched in awhile, you may need to do a lot of infrastructure work before getting to things like new features. In the case of this project, not only was the version of Rails grossly out of date; pretty much every dependency was as well. On top of that, the project was written by a developer who was new to Rails and new to the profession, so there were quality issues. The biggest: No meaningful tests to speak of–and making major infrastructure changes without halfway-decent tests is never fun.
