    Why Do Companies Not Replace Legacy Systems?

    Why Do Companies Not Replace Legacy Systems?

    #195: Most companies have decades of legacy systems running their day-to-day business. They're difficult to replace with newer systems, and they're costly to maintain. But they also offer security, stability, and consistency. The challenge is deciding how to make them work in the modern world.
     
    In this episode, we talk with Robert Cooke, CTO and Founder at 3forge, about why replacing legacy systems is not a simple as just doing it and also why open source may not be the answer that everyone thinks it is.

    How to Write Test Cases for Microservices

    How to Write Test Cases for Microservices

    #194: Whether you are doing greenfield development with microservices or are doing brownfield development migrating monoliths to microservices, there’s one thing that you have to get right when testing those microservices, otherwise you will fail. What is that one thing?
     
    Culture.
     
    If you don’t get the culture right, no amount of technology will fix the problems that you have now or in the future.
     
    In this episode, we talk with Darko Fabijan, co-founder of Semaphore, about the process and structure you need to follow when migrating away from monoliths and how to make sure that you get the culture right in order to succeed in the long term.

    Automatic AI-Powered Database Tuning Using OtterTune

    Automatic AI-Powered Database Tuning Using OtterTune

    #193: As a database administrator, you probably want to spend more time trying to make things better for people using your database instead of always chasing down the latest tuning parameters or queries that are causing problems. There are only 24 hours in a day and you’re not sure if you’ll ever be able to really make things any better with the schema changes and data volume that are constantly being thrown at the database you manage.
     
    In this episode, we talk with Andy Pavlo, CEO at OtterTune, about the knobs that should be turned in Postgres or MySQL before you even start trying to do any index or query tuning.

Darin and Viktor do a great job of breaking down important concepts in a digestible manner that may not always be so simple.
