Podcast on the state of software visualisation

As you might remember I have spent quite some time exploring how to apply data visualisations to codebases. My interest waned a bit with the rise of microservices, because the codebases got much smaller and the programming languages more varied (which was bad from a tooling perspective). However, when our podcast hosts Rebecca and Ashok asked me whether I was interested in joining a podcast on this topic, together with Korny, who has done some great work in this field recently, I obviously couldn't resist. Here's the result.

Legacy Modernization

I've worked with quite a few companies for which long-lived software assets remain critical to day-to-day operations, ranging from 20-year-old ERP systems to custom software products that first processed a transaction way back in the 1960s. In some cases, if only a very few, these assets continue to be used because they still work very well, were thoughtfully designed, and have been well cared for over the years. The vast majority of the time, though, they continue to be used because the cost to replace them is prohibitive. Decades of poor architecture guidelines and lax developer discipline resulted in the…

Distributed Systems Pattern: Singular Update Queue

When the state needs to be updated by multiple concurrent clients, we need it to be safely updated with one at a time changes. Generally locks are used to protect against concurrent modifications. But if the tasks being performed are time consuming, like writing to a file, blocking all the other calling threads until the task is completed can have severe impact on overall system throughput and latency. It is important to make effective use of compute resources, while still maintaining the guarantee of one at a time execution.
