Modern Legacy Systems

10th October 2013 in London at Skills Matter

This SkillsCast was filmed at Modern Legacy Systems

There are many Java and .NET based systems that haven't been touched in over a decade and this presentation explores some of the issues of upgrading, maintaining or replacing them and provides some pointers on solving common problems.

The term "Legacy System" conjures up images of a vast mainframe (with whirring tapes and flashing diodes) running COBOL programs in a basement. However, many current computing stacks are quite old and have many legacy implementations. Although Java/JVM is still at the cutting edge of innovation it's a language and ecosystem that's been around since 1995 (18 years) and C#/.NET is not much younger at 13 years old
