Adam Tornhill – Software (r)Evolution: A crystal ball to prioritize Technical Debt

Have you ever heard about the metaphor Technical Debt? Do you know what does is stand for? Technical debt is a concept in programming that reflects the extra development work that arises when code that is easy to implement in the short run is used instead of applying the best overall solution.

But hey! Adam has an advice: Don’t go short cut, because it’s a trap! You are asking yourself - why? Because you have to think about what happens after - what happens when you need to scale the system with million lines of that code and multiple development teams?

We are glad to present our speaker and extraordinary guy from Sweden - Adam Tornhill. Adam will explain you in detail why Technical Debt is something that has taken the software world by the storm. Adam is not just an ordinary programmer. Besides he is a real “forensic” expert for codes, he also enjoys psychology. That’s why he has two degrees: in engineering and psychology. Speaking about the combination of these two, it is worth to mention that this session will also help you adopt a holistic overview - a new perspective on software development, in order to uncover both problematic code, and the social dimension of the teams that develop your software.

Name Adam Tornhill is recognizable all over the IT world. He has the epithet as one of the most significant contributors to better understanding the evolution of the code, in the last 10 years.

Therefore, it is definitely worth listening to him. Applications are open – register on time!
