Big corps as little panopticons. Agile coaches as colonial imperialists.

  • Talk
  • Developer's life

Without any big conspiracy (nor any bad person on top) We have created dysfunctional corporate cultures where waste reins, sadness is rampant and the majority has abandoned hopes of changing.

It is a system where every participant is oppressed and also complicit in their oppression.

This talk aims to help you see the system and in seing it arm yourself to fight it. This talk also aims to convince you that you can, in fact, make a difference.

Reading code under the influence of one's emotions

  • Talk
  • Practices

We talk a lot about writing "beautiful" code but never about reading the "ugly" one! Yet we read more than we write and "ugly" is more frequent than "beautiful"! Suffer less! Arm yourself to improve your skill at reading code, to fight the tendency to needless despise your fellow Devs to make sense out of the ball of mud while under the influence of your emotions.

Kebab kata: Fight the system making your code sad!

  • Hands-on
  • Practices

Try to create a code you will not consider "legacy".

I'll play the role of your client and use around 20 techniques to make you fail.

You will fail.

We'll then discuss what techniques I have used, how they happen in real life, how to fight them in your project.

All languages welcome. Bring your own laptop with your environment. We'll split into small teams.
