Developer Practices Session: DPR304 FAIL: Anti-Patterns and Worst Practices

Room 276

Come to my session and hear about what NOT to do on your software project. Hear my own and others’ war stories and lessons learned. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll realize you’re a much better developer than a lot of folks out there. Here’s the official description:

Everybody likes to talk about best practices, tips, and tricks, but often it is by analyzing failures that we learn from our own and others’ mistakes. In this session, Steve describes various anti-patterns and worst practices in software development that he has encountered in his own experience or learned about from other experts in the field, along with advice on recognizing and avoiding them.
