Software design, team work and other man-made disasters

A session at Beauty in Code

There's more to software development than technology. More projects fail for social reasons than due to technologies or tools. To understand why, we need to dive into social psychology to uncover the intersection between technical decisions and people. In this session you'll learn to mine social information from source code repositories. You'll see how the way you chose to organize affects the code you write and how an architecture is as much a social as a technical design. As a bonus, you'll learn about social biases and how to fight them.
