Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast: Episode 40 – CD for Legacy Applications

Episode 40 – CD for Legacy Applications

what-is-legacy

This morning on #c9d9 we discussed Continuous Delivery for legacy applications.

Assuming your business did not start yesterday – you probably have some of those lying around: those applications that might be poorly understood, or poorly tested, that can be cumbersome or brittle, that may be difficult to update — but that somehow – still – just work.

This is the legacy code that keeps the lights on, but that you’re afraid to touch…

cd-for-legacy-codeHow do you deal with all your pre-DevOps applications?

Should you embark on a journey to ‘DevOps’ify your legacy applications? If so, how can you bring legacy code and technical debt into the fold – as part of your CD pipelines?

On the show, we discussed:

  • How do you define Legacy?
  • Should you poke that bear?
  • What are some of the challenges doing CI and CD for legacy apps?
  • What are some of the best practices to bring DevOps practices to legacy applications- where should you start, and how to go about it?

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
