Presentation: TweetHow to evolve large scale systems
In this talk we demonstrate from both a process and a technical perspective the challenges of evolving a large automation platform based on .net towards extended capacity, scalability, and performance, as well as lo lower footprint. How to approach, schedule and perform the evolution under given time and resource constraints? How to limit the effect of platform changes to the to applications using it? What are the technical measures to actually meet the required enhancements, and how were they realized? And how to deal with the constraints and limitations of the underlying .net platform? The lessons learned from this talk help you in understanding the challenges of evolving large scale systems in general, and enable you to take the appropriate process and technical approaches in evolving your own systems.
