Presentation: "The Beauty of Constraints"

Time: Thursday 16:10 - 17:00

Location: Grand Ballroom BC

Abstract:
Making any product is an exciting as well as challenging endeavor, especially in technology and software. As humans we are prone to let our creativity run free — but freedom is not always the best solution to solving problems. We benefit from constraints to truly ignite our creativity. More often than not, however, our code needs constraints—real world constraints which we are prone to overlook.

In his session, Faruk will talk about the values and lessons learned from imposing (sometimes arbitrary) constraints on software projects, and how they play a critical role in good API design.
