Introduction to Simplicity

Spotting Complexity and Simplicity
The Problem of Complexity in Software: Avoiding pushing elephants
'Complecting' in Action

Cardinality is not the issue
There's a human limit to complexity. We hit our limits. Intertwined things must be considered together.
Complexity inhibits understanding
Simplicity is a choice; you have to do this work. Simplicity makes things easier.
Complexity is bigger than tests, types, tools and processes.
All software is a liability; resistance is not futile
Extrinsic and Intrinsic Complexity
Simplicity and via negativa
How Simplicity enables Agility
Avoiding over-simplification
Recognising Entanglement

Practical Simplicity in Action

Spotting a complex architecture or design
Architectural agility through Events, Values and Immutability
Designing and Coding Supple Software:
Dealing with Integration
Bringing it all together: Applying the Life Preserver architectural style and tool
Remove/Reduce/Simplify aggressively

How Simplicity doesn't just stop with code…

Simplicity in Testing and Specification
Simplicity in Process Optimisation

To get the most out of this workshop you should have some experience developing real-world applications using Java (note that Russ will be using Java as the example language).
