Kill It with Fire (No Starch Press)
Friday, 16 April 2021

The subtitle of this book explains what it covers - Manage Aging Computer Systems (and Future Proof Modern Ones). “Kill it with fire,” the typical first reaction to a legacy system falling into obsolescence, is a knee-jerk approach that often burns through tons of money and time only to result in a less efficient solution. In this book Marianne Bellotti offers a far more forgiving modernization framework, laying out smart value-add strategies and proven incremental techniques that work equally well for ancient systems and brand-new ones.

<ASIN:1718501188>

Bellotti distills key lessons and insights from her experience restoring some of the world’s oldest, messiest computer networks into practical, research-backed guidance on topics from “chaos” testing solutions to building momentum-driven teams and effective communication structures.
