Stop Saying "Legacy"!
by David Shirey

  • "...for the last 20 years, the worst IT or business insult you could throw at someone was that their system was legacy."
  • "In some ways, the legacy confession is a way of transferring responsibility from you to your system for the fact that your system is not all it should be. 'Oh, we can't possibly be held responsible for the state of our system. It's legacy code.' Sorry, but that's a total cop-out."

All of this doesn’t change the fact we need to address skill development at all levels of our community."
  • "Focusing on the students it seems reasonably simple — their end goal is employability. The IBM i is a leader in the Power System install base and is used in every industry in the world. Watson is proving the capability of the machine on the global stage and the remarkable professionals at IBM promote the vitality of the platform to anyone and everyone who will listen."
