Presentation: Tweet"1000 year old design patterns"
Track: The Concurrency Challenge / Time: Wednesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Kammermusiksalen, Musikhuset
Mimicking human behavior is an underestimated method in software development. Perhaps this is because our programming languages have offered very poor models for capturing the way people organize themselves to solve complex problems. But if we could do this, we have thousands of years of practical experience to draw from. As it happens, the actor model captures human behavior quite well. In this talk, we will describe how failing to capture human behavior can be disastrous, and how the right programming model can liberate our thinking, allowing us to fall back on the most embarrassingly obvious design patterns - our own.
