The lost art of simplicity

A session at PHP UK Conference 2010

Simplicity is a lost art in the application development space. The Wikipedia definition of simplicity is "Simplicity is the property, condition, or quality of being simple or un-combined. It often denotes beauty, purity or clarity. Simple things are usually easier to explain and understand than complicated ones. Simplicity can mean freedom from hardship, effort or confusion." This is a beautiful statement that we often lose sight of when we are building our applications. Instead we are on a never ending quest to fill out a checklist of features or to build something clever forgetting about the actual needs of our users to get a specific task done. This session takes complexity to task and challenges you to bring simplicity to the centre of your development with some straightforward ideas and guidance.
