Software design principles aspire to be universal. And yet, when you create software, you sometimes intentionally violate principles.

You might not be able to explain why this "wrong" design somehow "feels" better. You're applying your own, unspoken design heuristics. Bringing them out in the open, improves design discussions, and helps you build a larger toolkit for making better tradeoffs.

In this session, Mathias will explore the benefits of distilling your design heuristics using practical examples.

Keynote: Design Heuristics

Mathias Verraes

Mathias Verraes advises companies on building software for complex environments. This involves primarily analysis and modelling, but also code, architecture, testing, and refactoring “unmaintainable” systems. He has worked with clients in Finance, Automotive, Government, Logistics, E-Commerce, and more. He teaches Domain-Driven Design courses and co-organises the DDD Europe conference. When he’s not working, he’s at home in Kortrijk, Belgium, helping his two sons build crazy Lego train tracks.
