Closing Keynote: Kevlin Henney - Clean Coders Hate What Happens To Your Code When You Use These Enterprise Programming Tricks

It is all to easy to dismiss problematic codebases on some nebulous idea of bad practice or bad programmers. Poor code, however, is rarely arbitrary and random in its structure or formulation. Systems of code, whether structured well or poorly, emerge from systems of practice, whether effective or ineffective. To improve code quality, it makes more sense to pick apart the specific practices and see how they interact — the cause — than just focus on the code itself — the effect. This keynote takes some time and has some fun looking at how a handful of coding habits, design practices and assumptions can systematically increase the size and complexity of a codebase.
