Michael Feathers--Keynote:Increasing Abstraction in Programming

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

When writers writes novels, articles or essays they are told to think
of their audience.  As programmers, we implicitly do the same. There
are rare occasions when we look at code and realize it was written for
rocket scientists and less rare occasions when we realize that it uses
patterns or idioms that go beyond the skill of the people who will
maintain the code. However, these perceptions imply a fixed-point.
They imply that the ability of programmers to deal with abstraction
can not increase over time.  In this keynote, Michael will explore this idea
and talk about what it could mean for our industry.
