This year my hobby will be building things to extract data from, analyze and visualize complex software (statically & runtime) to more quickly grok ridiculous codebases comprising complex systems I'm dealing with. Each layer has various independent security controls/confinement that don't always sit very well on the next. Want to more efficiently identify critical/trusted parts, or even just survey what components there are, to reveal actual (rather than communicated) structure. Lots of GraphDBs

By the time you have your first million lines of code there's easily 100+ person-years invested, surely we can spend a few months mapping this out. I don't know how everyone else feels so great leaning into such massive projects, regardless of language it's in, when the systems engineering/analysis required to meaningfully support such complexity appears to be totally absent from the core development process. I wish this wasn't so hard to sell to people
