Unreasonable Architecture

At this webinar we have invited Kevlin Henney to look into unreasonable software architecture. This talk covers a range of topics that affect software architecture, coding, testing and product management. It is technical but not code-focused.

It is not enough that software works as desired and expected. We place a great deal of value on its internal quality, citing the comprehensibility of the code and the clarity of its intent as hallmarks of that quality. We separate concerns and structures in order to understand and reason about our code. Domain-driven design seeks to distil our understanding of the domain into the structuring of code, creating a correspondence between the world of the problem and the world of the solution.

 

But what if such modularity and modelarity does not exist in the design or in the domain? What if the failure modes of software are not based on mechanisms structured for our understanding? Whether we are talking optimizing compilers, machine learning or the interactions of software with people and other systems, not everything about the software is reasonable or can be reasoned about easily.

Target Audience

This talk covers a range of topics that affect software architecture, coding, testing and product management. It is technical but not code-focused.

 

The target audience is anyone involved in development, whether as developer, as architect, as UX designer, as product owner, etc.
