ADP Engineering with Tim Halbur

ADP has been around for more than 70 years, fulfilling payroll and other human resources services. Payroll processing is a complex business, involving the movement of money in accordance with regulatory and legal strictures. 

From an engineering point of view, ADP has decades of software behind it, and a bright future of a platform company used by thousands of companies. Balancing the maintenance of old code while charting a course with the new projects is not a simple task. 

Tim Halbur is the Chief Architect of ADP, and he joins the show to talk through how engineering works at ADP, and how the organization builds for the future of the company while maintaining the code of the past.
