Keynote: Software Design in the 21st Century - Agile Singapore Conference 2016

Published on: Tuesday, 18 October 2016

Speaker: Martin Fowler (@martinfowler), Chief Scientist @ ThoughtWorks

In the last decade or so we've seen a number of new ideas added to the mix to help us effectively design our software. Patterns help us capture the solutions and rationale for using them. Refactoring allows us to alter the design of a system after the code is written. Agile methods, in particular Extreme Programming, give us a highly iterative and evolutionary approach which is particularly well suited to changing requirements and environments. Martin Fowler has been a leading voice in these techniques and will give a suite of short talks featuring various aspects about his recent thinking about how these and other developments affect our software development.
