M.Chapman Posted November 9, 2015 Share Posted November 9, 2015 Google Search or any other third party search would have to be customized to use Alamy's essential/main/comprehensive prioritization. And what are the odds that Alamy's code would have a place for a clean interface with it? Good point, I didn't think of that, and yes, given the problems we've seen over the years suggests Alamy's code has grown and grown and may no longer be as well structured as they'd like. In my previous life I was responsible for product development that included software. Over the years I relied on a few software engineers who had been with the company for years who kept adding to the code to add new features. We suffered from bugs, delayed release dates, unpredictable behaviour. Then the company had a shake up and I ended up with a new younger software team. They started from scratch and "re-engineered" the software from the ground up using all the latest techniques (structured design, data flow diagrams, use case models etc.). It was a revelation. They very quickly replaced the old software with new code that worked reliably and predictably. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
