Unconditional Code • Michael Feathers

Many systems are full of error checks and conditional logic. They introduce discontinuities that make reasoning difficult. In this talk, Michael Feathers will present a conceptual framework for dealing with errors, conditionality and decision making at the level of code, architecture and user interface. Often by changing design and revisiting requirements we can make various error cases impossible, and make code and architecture simpler as well as more robust.

 Core Design Principles for Software Developers by Venkat Subramaniam

Writing code is easy. Writing good quality code is an entirely different story. How can we measure the quality of design? How do we know we're doing the right set of things that will lead us to a better design? In this session, we will learn about some core software design principles that help programmers every day. Instead of talking about theory and what we could potentially do, we will take on multiple examples, discuss the solution, pros and cons, and bring out key design principles that have an impact on the outcome.
