It's easy to think software is magic - but it's not. Most of the time, it's not even sufficiently advanced. Like everything else in our world, the people you work with and the products they build are subject to the fundamental laws of nature. In this talk, Pieter Hintjens and Dylan Beattie will explore the laws of our universe - from Amdahl to Zip, from Newton's Laws of Motion to Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, from Conway to Murphy to Godwin to Moore.
We'll discuss how they apply to your projects, even when you want to pretend they don't, and explain why if you ignore them, your work will collapse like a badly-designed bridge.
