This is a quick announcement that my group’s speed blog from the SSI Collaborations Workshop 2020 has now been posted on the SSI blog: https://software.ac.uk/blog/2020-05-25-cw20-speed-blog-maintaining-your-legacy-tips-making-legacy-code-sustainable
As the title suggests, it is all about legacy software and tips for how to maintain it. My personal experience is with old Fortran 77 and 90 code, and that is what I based my contribution to the article on. For me, I still get caught up in the flawed physicist perspective that if code works, then not much else matters.
Also, the process of writing the blog was a great learning experience and spurned me to get going with my own blog writing.
