Developing Software using the latest complex technology is cool. Software evolution by adding features and fixing bugs can be a burden. Both lead to brittle, buggy, overly complex and poorly performing software solutions. The value of Simplicity of a software solution is often neglected by many software people today. Making software simpler increases its value, because of lower maintenance burden and easier extendability. This talk explains what "simple" software means and how to approach it with "Decremental Development" even for existing (unnecessarily) complicated software.
