Kill It with Fire: Manage Aging Computer Systems (and Future Proof Modern Ones)

Legacy Software

Legacy Software


Let’s face it – our computer systems are not getting any younger! In fact, many of the most important computer systems that our daily activities rely on are shockingly old (think electrical power, air traffic control, and processing of federal income taxes)!

We can all shut our eyes and just hope that they keep working – even when servers, hard drives, and operating systems eventually fail. Alternatively, we can realize that we’ve got a problem on our hands and we need to start to think about what we can do about it.

Marianne Bellotti, author of “Kill It with Fire,” believes that legacy modernization isn’t about old computer systems, it’s about restoring and maintaining operational excellence. The same techniques that work for our worst technical debt are critical in building new systems too.

Only successful software ever survives long enough to become legacy software. Yet, organizations and developers of new software repeatedly fail to learn from past issues with legacy systems. The result is a predictable series of problems with new systems. Join us for this talk with Marianne about how to modernize your legacy software and how to change your software development practices and your organization to future-proof your new software.

Join us to hear how Marianne thinks that we can fix our legacy software problem:
