Leveraging Our “Brains” in Software Development

Our brains empower us to run complicated software development programs, but can also be the thing that prevents us from achieving the best possible results due to several psychological biases. Fahran Wallace, senior consultant at OpenCredo, and Benjamin Mitchell, director of engineering at Kevel, discuss those psychological biases at work, how we can tackle them and how we can wire the brain to overcome them.

Domain Storytelling: A Collaborative, Visual, and Agile Way to Build Domain-Driven software

Some things must be told that cannot be written, so that storytelling is deeply, deeply human." Stories are the backbone of our culture as humankind. They can be successfully used as agile, collaborative ways to not only view but understand the various domains that software projects touch upon. Avraham Poupko explores how you can better understand and visualize this, in a domain-driven way, with the authors of the "Domain Storytelling: A Collaborative, Visual & Agile Way to Build Domain-Driven Software", Stefan Hofer and Henning Schwentner.

Strategy on Big Programmes

<p>At our company we have been, and continue to be, involved in a number of large programmes. These are often to do with product development and always to do with influencing large groups of people internally and externally. They always involve distributed systems.&nbsp;</p> <p>They are always in a realm where there are competitors, external pressures and internal fears.</p> <p>This talk is for those who don't just want to survive their programmes but to thrive in them. Drawing from over 15 years of experience, Jamie will share some stories, some do's and don'ts, and try to convince the audience that not only is strategy emergent but that if you don't let it emerge you will not succeed.</p>


Seven Secrets of Maintainable Codebases

<p>In this session you'll learn novel techniques that help you make sense of large codebases.&nbsp;</p> <p>You'll learn to identify the code that really matters for your ability to maintain a system, how to prioritize improvements and even evaluate your architecture based on how you actually work with the code.</p> <p>We'll also cover the people side of programming as you learn to mine social information such as communication paths, developer knowledge and hotspots.</p> <p>All techniques are based on software evolution. They use data from the most underused informational source that we have in our industry: our version-control system. Each point is illustrated with a case study from a real-world project.<br /><br /></p> <p>This is a new perspective on software development that will change how you work with large systems. Come join the hunt for better code!</p>


Industry Myth Busting

The software development industry is fraught with myths, legends and other beliefs that aren't necessarily supported by facts. Joris has been working in this industry for almost 25 years now, and in that time has established his own set of convictions about truths and lies on topics like the importance of developer testing, choosing the right programming language, microservices and various other topics. Although his experience may count as N=1, he believes he's had a lot of Ns: in this keynote he'll bust some of the more pervasive myths that he observes in the wild and will provide some food for thought that will hopefully make you reconsider some of your own strongly held beliefs.
