Too often, tech teams rush to discard mainframes and legacy infrastructure, immediately aiming to build something shiny and new. However, just as the Saqqara was revolutionary when it was built, and acted as the origin point of Egypt’s 96 other pyramids, mainframes that we now classify as ‘legacy’ were the epitome of innovation when first set up.
MacRae Linton had been contracted to build out an AI infrastructure for a startup, over an eight-month period. The startup ended up being bought out, thanks to the solid tools they built.

They are composed of a diverse array of individual components capable of interacting with each other and adapting to a changing environment. As systems, they produce behavior that differs in kind from the behavior of their components. Tim Berglund discusses the emerging discipline of Complexity Theory that seeks to describe such phenomena previously encountered in biology, sociology, economics, and other disciplines. Beyond new ways of looking at ant colonies, fashion trends, and national economies, complexity theory promises powerful insights to software development. The Internetperhaps the most valuable piece of computing infrastructure of the present daymay fit the description of a complex
