Kill It with Fire: Manage Aging Computer Systems (and Future Proof Modern Ones)
Not what I expected. I thought I was getting a technical book with literal strategies for managing and migrating legacy systems.
Instead, the book spends a lot of time on organizational politics, change planning, and even developer psychology. I’m not saying this is wrong (the author clearly knows more than me), but I feel like it wasn’t quite what the book was promoted as.
The book did open my eyes to other aspects of the migration and management process, but I was looking for something much more practical and hands-on.
- I have read this book. According to my records, I completed it on August 7, 2021.
