Abstract/Description

Developers and teams often get stuck in old patterns of designing software, losing the benefits that modern software practices have brought to us, building unmaintainable code that requires band-aids and hacks and even alienating users in a number of ways. Often, team members work in isolation, where their patterns and thinking are stuck in a bubble. Sometimes it takes an intervention to help teams break out of these patterns. Julie Lerman will share her experiences with intense "interventions", pushing teams to gain new perspective on their own problem domain, how to break down problems and organize their software flow using many ideas from Domain-Driven Design.
