Presentation: 8 Lines of Code

Track: Good Code / Time: Wednesday 10:20 - 11:10 / Location: Century B

Everyone talks about simplicity but how do we reach it? This talk looks at eight lines of very common code finding in them massive numbers of dependencies and difficulties. It then looks at how the code can be massaged to get rid of the dependencies and difficulties. Small changes often times go a long way towards simplicity.

Presentation: PARALLEL DEVELOPERS KEYNOTE: Developers have a mental disorder

Time: Thursday 17:00 - 17:50 / Location: Millennium A
