Traditionally, resilient software is software that can recover quickly from failures. However, adaptive resilient software goes beyond that and focuses on the ability to transition effectively. Whether it's the departure of a software engineer, strategic pivots, or other changes, adaptive resilient software can adjust and evolve smoothly.
This portfolio item explores practical methods and techniques to build adaptive resilient software, including creating flexible, scalable, and maintainable code, utilizing tools like linting, unit tests, continuous integration, documentation, containerization, infrastructure as code, and project management. It also emphasizes the importance of transparency and observability in software development.
Building adaptive resilient software is crucial in today's rapidly changing software landscape. By implementing the practical methods and utilizing the recommended tools, software teams can create software that is flexible, maintainable, scalable, and transparent. This enables smooth transitions, even in the face of challenges or changes, ensuring the long-term success and sustainability of software projects.
