Episode 1: Managing & Modernizing Legacy Code

Posted on 2011/02/22 by


In episode 1, our rambunctious crew of physicists and nuclear engineers discuss a common problem in all of scientific computing: legacy code!  We wax philosophic on issues in this space and provide suggestions for real-world solutions when you happen to inherit un-documented, un-tested, often-used programs that somehow constitute science.

Today’s lovely hosts include:

  • Milad Fatenejad
  • Katy Huff
  • Jonathan Rocher
  • Anthony Scopatz (moderator)

Intro/Outro Music: ‘Bulletproof’ -La Roux
