Abstract

Software design principles aspire to be universal. And yet, when you create software, you sometimes intentionally violate principles.

You might not be able to explain why this “wrong” design somehow “feels” better. You’re applying your own, unspoken design heuristics. Bringing them out in the open, improves design discussions, and helps you build a larger toolkit for making better tradeoffs.

In this session, Mathias will explore the benefits of distilling your design heuristics using practical examples.
