Development and Philosophy

A session at eurucamp 2012

Friday 17th August, 2012

7:45pm to 8:30pm (CET)

We spend most of our times obsessing about the actual act of programming.
Is this method name too long? Should I refactor this code? How do I fix
this bug? However, sometimes, large gains can be made by drawing in
experience from totally different fields.

I think there's a lot a programmer can learn from the study of
epistemology, logic, metaphysics, moral and political philosophy, and
aesthetics. In this talk, I'll give an overview of a bunch of interesting
thinkers, philosophical problems, and how they relate to the worlds of
software development, open source, and startups.
