Please Won’t Someone Think of the Users

Please Won’t Someone Think of the Users

August 19, 2022 from 9:00 am to 9:50 am

Speaker: Mike Page

Talk Description

In almost all situations the code we write has a direct impact on the users that consume it, sometimes positive and sometimes negative. In this talk we’ll take a deep (ish) dive into several of the systems that Outerdawn have built, and in some cases, rebuilt in order to maximise the positive impacts and minimise the negative.

Talk Takeaways

Listeners will hopefully take away a better understanding of the impacts our code and architecture decisions can have on users and a grasp of when it’s better to spend the time upfront to build something more complex to better serve those users’ needs.
